Antioxidant rich spice



Rosemary


Another herb that is antioxidant-rich is "Rosemary". According to research, rosemary contains powerful antioxidants that may help to inhibit free radical damage to cells. Rosemary was been revealed to have even greater health benefits than paprika. Using rosemary to season fish, vegetables, egg-white omelets, and salads will give your system an antioxidant boost.

Rosemary is an excellent accompaniment to pork and chicken. In Mediterranean cuisine, rosemary is most often associated with vegetables sautéed in olive oil such as zucchini, tomatoes and eggplant. Sprinkle dried rosemary on charcoal when grilling for a delicious, aromatic treat.

Rosemary is very good with apricots, cabbage, cream cheese, eggplant, eggs, fish, lamb, lentils, mushrooms, onions, oranges, parsnips, pork, potatoes, poultry, rabbit, tomatoes, veal, and winter squashes

Rosemary combines well with bay leaves, chives, garlic granules, oregano, parsley, sage, savory and thyme.

  3. I use rosemary almost everyday in my daily cooking, Carl. I love how it smells. I remember when I was a child and I used to live in little town, with fields where rosemary grew everywhere. Ah... funny days of my childhood... :)

    Take care :)

  7. That's very cool. I'm assuming it has to be fresh in order to be beneficial. Correct?
