Homemade Amazing: Rosemary
Before I got my handy dandy food dehydrator, I air dried some rosemary that I had grown in my front yard.
Rosemary fronds are ideal for air-drying because they have plenty air space to prevent mildewing.
With a little patience, you have homemade dried rosemary that smells better than what you can buy at the store.
Rosemary bushes are great for landscaping because they look good all year long.
They stand up to the summer sun and the couple of nights in the winter when it gets below 32 degrees.
Rosemary bushes also grow like weeds, so trimming them is necessary. Trust me. You’ll have more than enough fresh rosemary for cooking. I like to keep mine trimmed so that the fronds do not get too woody.
My rosemary bushes produce much more product than I can use, so I typically dry the excess and give to friends.
