Rosemary as sweet as its name.  It is primarily a savory herb used in a variety of ways.  Some of my favorite uses are crushed fresh rosemary added to Rosemary Garlic Asparagus or in Estella’s Leek and Potato Soup.  It is excellent added to poultry or potatoes, as well.

Drying rosemary is simple.  Hang upside down a cool, dry, dark room.  When it is crisp as paper remove from stalks by firmly running your hand opposite the direction of the leaves and then collecting what drops from this motion.  You may crush it in a food processor or store it whole.  Keep it in a airtight container out of direct sunlight.
