Featured Ingredient:  Rosemary

Rosemary is a highly aromatic herb with great ornamental and culinary value for your garden. The leaves are easily removed from the woody stem and added to flavor a great variety of dishes, from stews and soups to dressings and baked goods, or even mixed with butter and melted over a steak. Unlike most herbs, rosemary’s flavor is stronger when just-picked than dried, so it’s worth having a fresh source on hand. The plants are also very easy to grow, either directly in the ground or in a pot. With so many uses, it’s definitely worth learning how to grow your own rosemary!
