Rosemary is a perennial herb that is a member of the mint family, with needle-like green leaves and white, pink, purple, or blue flowers. Upon cultivation, the leaves are separated for use. Rosemary has a slightly astringent, sweet, piney flavor. It is notable in Italian (an ingredient in our Italian Seasoning) and other Mediterranean cuisines. It is a source of fiber, calcium and iron. Crushed leaves can be added to a wide variety of recipes including potatoes, breads, soups, or sauces. Store a twig of rosemary in vinegar to add flavor.
