I have always liked the taste and smell of fresh or dried rosemary; but, I had no idea that it had so many interesting and healthful attributes. Recently, in 'Mother Earth Living' magazine, I read about all the benefits of rosemary. This year, I finally able to plant my own rosemary in the garden and took a pot of it into the basement before the frost. I have been able to keep it going and still able to harvest and dry the herb for cooking pleasure.
Growing rosemary is easy and also easy to harvest and dry. Besides providing wonderful flavor to just about anything you cook it also is touted as a brain booster and memory aid, a hair growth tonic, anti inflammatory effective and numerous other health benefits. This coming Thanksgiving, I plan to cook beef sirloin with Rosemary Portobello Gravy, my all time favorite gravy, great on baked butternut squash or sweet potatoes.
