Rosemary is one of the most widely used culinary herbs, featuring in dishes such as lamb, stews, roast fish, eggs, and many others.
Rosemary is a shrub that originated in the Mediterranean area but has spread to temperate zones.
The best story about rosemary is related to the flowers, which were originally white. When the Holy Family fled to Egypt, at one point they had to hide from the soldiers and spread their cloak over a rosemary tree, kneeling behind it. When the soldiers left, he removed his cape and the flowers turned blue in his honor.
It is also said that rosemary will grow for 33 years, the life of Christ, and then die.
In Elizabethan times, at a wedding, the bride and groom would take a sprig of rosemary as a sign of fidelity. Guests were also given a sprig of rosemary tied with a golden ribbon as a sign of love and loyalty.
In the past, rosemary was burned to refresh and purify the air. At the time of the Black Plague, rosemary necklaces were made for people to smell as they traveled and in Victorian times rosemary was burned as candles in candlesticks for the same reason.
