Melissa’s Rosemary is a highly aromatic member of the mint family.
Melissa’s Rosemary is a highly aromatic member of the mint family. Use when preparing a variety of dishes, Melissa’s Rosemary imparts a pine-lemon flavor and aroma. Rosemary is often used in the preparation of herb breads, stuffing, fresh fruit salads, fish, lamb, marinades, rice and pickles.
Melissa’s Rosemary is popular when grilling red meats and even vegetables. Enjoy the sweet fragrance and flavor of Rosemary by placing several sprigs of silver-green, needle-shaped leaves in the oven when baking or simply tossing a few sprigs onto the hot coals when grilling.
Melissa’s Fresh Herbs are hand selected for excellent quality. Choose fresh-looking Rosemary with good color and a clean, fresh scent. Avoid any brown spots or wilted stalks or leaves. Use soon after purchasing.
To keep fresh, refrigerate in a plastic bag filled with air and securely closed. Store in the vegetable crisper section of the refrigerator. If leaves do become wilted, an ice water bath can revive them.
Place Melissa’s Herbs stem side down in a jar of water (similar to fresh flowers) and cover with a tightly closed plastic bag. Store away from ethylene-producing fruits and vegetables like tomatoes, bananas and peppers.
Leaves should be thoroughly washed and dried before using.
