OVERVIEW
Rosemary is an aromatic member of the mint family native to the Mediterranean region where it is utilized as a treasured culinary spice. It is a flowering evergreen, producing thin, needle-like leaves. They can grow prolifically and prefer full sun and well-drained soil, but can also thrive in pots on the windowsill.
Rosemary adds a delightful flavor to cuisine all across the world. The younger leaves are preferred for a sweeter flavor, standing up well to cooking, even at high temperatures. The smell of rosemary is piney and fresh; familiar but also distinctive. It is baked into breads and crackers, and is classically used as a rub for pork and lamb.

Native to the Mediterranean region, rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) received its name from the Roman author Pliny, who described it as a flowering plant that grows so close to the shore that foam from the sea sprays upon it.
Early Christians believed that during the flight to Egypt, when the Virgin Mary made a bed for the Christ Child upon a clump of rosemary, the plant’s flowers turned blue, a color that represented eternity, truth, and wisdom. It is believed that rosemary was not used for cooking until the Middle Ages, when it became popular as a means of masking the taste of salt-preserved meats, Rosemary leaves do not lose their flavor through long cooking, as other leaves do, and are more aromatic when dried than when fresh. They are most frequently used to flavor fish, meat (particularly chicken), potato, and vegetable dishes. The taste of rosemary is very strong, and cooks must take care not to overdose their recipes with it.
