Rosemary

Discussion in 'Cookery' started by The Pobble, Apr 13, 2012.

  1. Less meat and loads of rosemary??
    Bliss. Rosemary goes well with beans! Delia does a sausage and bean dish that is great link
    Basically choose a bean and add rosemary and whatever else you fancy. Even green beans! And white bean mash deserves a good dollop of rosemary too!
    Can you tell I like rosemary?? [​IMG]

    OK, this is what I have done:
    • I have 1 litre of rosemary water for faces/hair etc
    • I have 2 ice cube trays of the same for later use
    • I have a large plastic box of frozen chopped rosemary
    • I have 1 large jar of dried, rubbed rosemary
    • I have several branches waiting to be used.
    Thanks for your ideas - especially Si: I had forgotten the money I used to spend on rosemary water for my face in France! Now I have my own [​IMG]

    Some lovely ideas H but IMO rosemary grows so vigorously I wouldn't worry about wasting some as more will have grown before you've had the chance to use what you've cut!
     
  7. I have a lovely recipie for sweet potato & rosemary soup, but... ;-)
     
  8. Now don't ask me how you do this, you will have to google, but I very distinctly remember, when I had a garden and a mega harvest of rosemary, finding various comments on t'interweb, that you can make a great carpet and sofa and curtain deoderiser.
    @ belle - waste not want not! I hate wasting stuff. I would be like Henriette and making face water and goodness knows what out of it ;o)

    I'd echo the advice to use it in tomato sauces - a nice alternative to oregano. I do like bacon, red wine and rosemary risotto too - yum!

    Dry your rosemary in a cool dark place and crumble it up into dry jars.
    It's lovely on fried tomatoes, mushrooms and peppers with a bit of balsamic vinegar. Have it with anything red - meat, tomatoes, peppers etc
