One of my very favorite things about our new house is the rosemary bush in the front yard. My sister-in-law planted it when she and my brother lived here (her father is our landlord), and I can’t thank her enough! Not only is it pretty, but it’s very practical. Whenever I’m making an Italian sauce, I just send the kids out to clip a sprig. It’s fabulous. And fresh rosemary doesn’t take nearly as long to cook in a sauce as dried rosemary does, so that’s another big benefit. I hate hard rosemary in my spaghetti sauce.
What’s your favorite herb? To be perfectly honest, rosemary isn’t mine; thyme is. But I don’t have a thyme plant in my yard ;).
Are you going to Scarborough Fair? Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme…
Sorry, couldn’t resist.
Oh, and I love herbs. Can’t say I have a fave. Being Italian, I love any that going into the gravy (where I come from, we call spaghetti sauce gravy). I also love to make Indian food, so I love curry–an acquired taste.
Herbs make tastebuds happy :). Out west we call spaghetti sauce “spaghetti sauce” and gravy “gravy.” We’re crazy that way ;). Curry is good! I don’t like mine too spicy though. I don’t think I’ve ever had an Indian curry, though – just Japanese & Thai varieties.
Oh that would be wonderful!
It’s especially nice when I remember to use it! Lol!
