Frontier Natural Products Organic Rosemary Leaf Whole Description
Natural Products Co-op
Rosemary's woody scent and minty flavor bring a balsamic deliciousness to sweet and savory dishes alike.
Small fields of rosemary dot the landscape within Spain's Sierra Mariola National Park, a beloved natural landmark just off the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. The rosemary fields, protected from chemical drift and synthetic fertilizers, sit among the park's pine forests and patches of yew, teak, maple, ashe, and oak. Farmers use sustainable farming practices on the land within the park to peacefully coexist with the natural plants and wildlife. Techniques such as terracing to avoid soil erosion and using the trees as natural windbreaks allows for the non-intrusive coexistence of agricultural commerce and natural, protected beauty. This is where Frontier's organic rosemary grows. It's an arid land that forces the plants it sustains to use the sparse water efficiently -- creating rosemary high in essential oil and full of flavor.
Suggested Uses: Try rosemary in soups, stews and sauces, with apples and other fruits. Enjoy its balsamic tone in herb vinegars and salad dressings as well as breads (rosemary and olive oil focaccia, for example). It makes a refreshing tea and interesting addition to lemonade. You'll find rosemary in recipes for marinades, baked fish, rice, eggs, and dumplings. You'll also find it in liqueurs like benedictine, summer wines and fruit cordials and in blends bouquet garni and herbes de Provence. Unlike many seasonings, rosemary doesn't loose any of its potent flavor or aroma during cooking.
