Rosemary is a hardy herb in the mint family that has been used for thousands of years as both a food source and medicine. It has thick, woody stems, and soft but pointy, green leaves. The leaves have a strong aroma.
How to Prep
Wash fresh rosemary and gently remove leaves by pinching the base of a stem and then running fingers along the length of the stem. Dice and pair with poultry, meat, and root vegetables, especially potatoes.
Store fresh bundles in a shallow container of water on the counter and use as soon as possible.
Alternatively, space stems on a plate or tray and allow to dry completely in a cool, dark spot for about 2 weeks. Then either remove leaves or store whole stems in a bag or container.
