There are many ways to use Rosemary! I am going to share some of my favorite ways to use this wonderful herb!
Rosemary Salt: Pull the rosemary leaves from the stem to make 1 cup. Add it to 3 cups of salt. Stir it all together and let it sit for approximately two weeks, covered. This creates an infused rosemary salt that can be used on any number of dishes
Rosemary infused oil: Pour 2 cups of olive oil into a small pot. Bring to a slight simmer. Turn it off and remove it from the heat. Wash and completely dry 3 or 4 rosemary sprigs and place them into a clean jar. Pour the oil into the jar with the rosemary sprigs. The longer you let it sit the stronger the infusion is.
Rosemary Honey: Add 5 rosemary sprigs (each about 3 inches long) to 1 cup of honey in a small pot. Bring to a simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let steep for about 45 minutes. Remove the rosemary sprigs and pour the honey into a small container. Use on toast, drizzle over goat cheese or brie, or use as a sweetener in tea.
Rosemary Simple Sugar: Bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Add 2 cups of sugar and 3 or 4 rosemary sprigs. Stir until the sugar has dissolved (about 5 minutes). Remove from the heat. Remove the rosemary sprigs. Pour the simple sugar into a jar. To use, drizzle it on fresh fruit or add it to smoothies. Or, for something sweeter, drizzle it over a sponge cake, bundt cake, or angel food cake for a delicate twist.
Rosemary Hair Rinse: 1/2 cup dried rosemary and 1/2 cup olive oil. Combine ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat until it is warm. Remove from the heat and let it steep for 20 minutes. Strain the mixture and pour it into a small bottle. Coat your hair with the mixture. Cover your hair with a shower cap for 20 minutes. Rinse with cool water and wash as normal with shampoo
There are so many ways to use Rosemary, the recipes are endless. I will be publishing a small book of my recipes here soon. I will let you know when it is finished! Until next time keep gardening!
