Question Is all Rosemary edible?

We have three rosemary plants in the front yard, but I don't know if we can use them to eat. Any herb plant specialists out there? I'd be ever grateful!

If it's real rosemary you can. But I wouldn't advise using more than a sprig for seasoning. It's too strong flavored.

Yes! Does it have a very pungent smell? Yes!

Use it sparingly in Italien dishes, meat marinades, egg dishes or just to brush BBQ. I use mine for table decoration (makes nice napkin rings as it bends easily), presents and dry some (mikrowave in 30 second intervals on paper towels).

Depending on your zone it will grow rapidly and benefits from overall pruning. Enjoy it and wait for lavender blooms as do your bees.

Default I would really like to make 'Oil of Rosemary'

It is my favorite 'essence' and tired of paying $5/6 for a small bottle.

But, if you have to have a manufacturing plant to get the oil out of the plant--forget that.

I've dried some--but it is the smell I like--not much left when it is dried. Good for cooking.

I sometimes burn some dried rosemary in the coals after I grill--that produces a nice fragrance.

A fine herb.

I like to put rosemary on the grill when cooking lamb or salmon. Yum.
One of my favorite ways to use it is with oven fries or steamed new potatoes.
It really is a fine herb indeed. I love creeping rosemary, too. It's kinda cute.

I like to use rosemary in marinades, bread/pizza crust, in flavored vinegar & olive oil, pasta sauce, salad dressing, etc.

We love rosemary, and it would save us money to use our own! It has a very strong smell, so I guess it's good to use! Thanks!
