Rosemary not only boasts a delightful aroma but also symbolizes the 'unforgettable' nature of loved ones and the departed. Furthermore, the health benefits are plentiful. Learn all about them in this blog from Taste Up.

What is rosemary?

Rosemary is a small shrub with resinous, dark green leaves that resemble needles. The name comes from the Latin rosmarinus, which roughly translates to 'dew of the sea.' A fitting name.

Due to the color and texture of the leaves, it appears as if a mist hangs over them. Additionally, rosemary primarily grew in regions along the Mediterranean in the past. And the symbolism doesn't end there.

Rosemary symbolizes friendship, loyalty, and 'not forgetting.' In the past, for example, rosemary sprigs were given to loved ones embarking on journeys. Placing sprigs on graves ensured that the departed would not be forgotten.

What dishes can you make with rosemary?

The aroma of rosemary is rich and distinctive. Therefore, you can use the herb to flavor various vegetable, meat, and fish dishes. Think pork, beef, lamb, game, and stews.

Not to forget: the leaves of rosemary are difficult to eat due to their tough texture. Therefore, it's best to add them during cooking so they can impart their flavor and aroma to the dish.

Some ideas:

  1. Roast leg of lamb with garlic and rosemary
  2. Spicy lemon chicken with garlic and rosemary
  3. Pork tenderloin with mustard sauce and rosemary
  4. Venison stew with rosemary, root vegetables, and sautéed apples
  5. Venison stew with rosemary and cranberry jam

What are the health benefits of rosemary?

Rosemary isn't coincidentally associated with the symbolism of 'not forgetting.' Studies show that rosemary has a positive effect on our memory function. Furthermore, the herb has a strong healing effect on respiratory infections.

Feeling a bit fatigued? Or not quite yourself? Then make rosemary tea for yourself. The delightful aroma of the herb will undoubtedly lift your spirits and energize you. Rosemary combats anxiety, stress, and insomnia. The herb even reduces swelling.

In summary:
