Native to the Mediterranean¸ where warmer temperatures prevail¸ Rosemary (rosmarinus officinalis) was introduced to Britain by the Romans. Boughs of Rosemary have had many uses in the past. They were carried at weddings¸ used to freshen rooms¸ and burned as incense. They are also used as a pungent flavoring in cooking. The leaves¸ fresh or dried¸ can be used with chicken¸ meats (especially lamb)¸ stews¸ breads¸ pizzas¸ and vegetables. Dried leaves can also be added to the coals of barbecues¸ near the end of cooking¸ to impart Rosemary’s characteristic flavor to meats. In addition to its varied culinary uses¸ Rosemary also has a history as a health-giving herb. In 1525¸ Banckes’ Herbal¸ the first book devoted exclusively to herbs and their uses¸ was printed in England and included Rosemary. Early Arabian physicians are credited as the first to recommend this fragrant herb as a tea. And today¸ it is still enjoyed¸ often before retiring.
