(Rosmarinus officinalis)

Rosemary is a commonly grown culinary herb. Both the leaves and the flowers are edible. It goes great with a roast meal, simply sprinkle cut leaves over potatoes, kumara, carrots, parsnips, beetroots, onions and garlic and cut slits into the meat and insert the stem into the pockets before roasting for an irresistible flavour.

Try making your own rosemary infused olive oil by placing fully dry sprigs into a bottle of oil, leave for two weeks in a warm dark place and then strain, it goes deliciously over slices of toasted french stick.
