Rosemary is a woody-stemmed, evergreen shrub that is native to the Mediterranean.

Long recognized as a symbol of fidelity and remembrance, the pine-like aroma and flavor of rosemary is equally unforgettable. Compared to many other herbs, dried rosemary retains the full-bodied flavor of fresh rosemary, although you can expect it to be slightly less intense.

what else you should know

whole rosemary

Rosemary is a hardy perennial in the mint family that occurs naturally throughout the Mediterranean. Elsewhere, it is grown for food and as an ornamental specimen, and in cooler climates it is cultivated as an annual.

The herb has long had an association with memory and scholarly pursuits. In ancient Greece, students wore garland wreaths of rosemary around their heads to help them retain information and improve recall during exams. Ironically, rosemary contains a potent antioxidant compound called rosmarinic acid that is being studied for its efficacy in countering memory loss in people with neurological disorders.
