365 ~ 77 ~ Herbs in Macro II

Rosemary



A popular herb in Mediterranean cooking, used both fresh and dried.  The leaves have a very strong scent and a slightly bitter taste, complimenting many foods.  

Intersting note:  Rosemary is extremely high in iron, calcium, and Vitamin B6.  Rosemary extract has been shown to improve the shelf life and heat stability of omega-3 rich oils, which are prone to going rancid.


Here are some ways to use Rosemary...for more, just go to The Wooden Spoon, and type Rosemary into the search box.

  1. I have a love hate with Rosemary. I like it but not too much.
