Rosemary. I have it in my pantry!



That's an easy one, my favorite, rosemary. I'm surprised yours is surviving in the snow. (Disclaimer: I worked on an herb farm for twelve years).

We don't have rosemary in the pantry, but it's out in the garden buried under the snow.

Rosemary, I have it in the pantry and I also have 3 plants. Love it!

Since it grows so abundantly here, I just go to my neighbor's front yard when I need some. :)

Just as everyone else says, it is rosemary. It is my absolute favorite of all herbs. I have several different plants of the upright and creeping varieties. I especially loved the creeping bariety along my garden paths; because every step brought hrasvenly aromas remeniscent of of our northern pine forrests.

I have it in my pantry, and also have some growing in the kitchen window!

Rosemary. I have a huge bush of it just outside my front door. Marvelous stuff.

Here in Albuquerque, my rosemary plants last all winter. I cut them back in the early spring. What a pleasure to have fresh rosemary year round!

Rosemary - I have it in my pantry and in my refrigerator. One of my favorite herbs!

Rosemary. I have it in my pantry, and right now I have a little rosemary "tree" that I got at Whole Foods (my middle son is allergic to evergreens).

I normally prefer to just go cut it as needed from my rosemary bush. It over winters nicely for me in a protected spot even when the weather is harsh. I have dried it before when the bush went into overdrive one summer and took over the herb bed.

Rosemary is best fresh I feel but I do use it dried as well.

Rosemary is not in my pantry. I do not like it.

me too! I grow it!

I've got rosemary under snow, too! I can't believe herring pairs with Poland. Shocking!
