A tender perennial shrub, rosemary is used to flavor many meat and vegetable dishes. The flavor is a little minty with a hint of pine and ginger. Thick, needle-like grayish-green leaves can be used crushed or chopped in your favorite recipes. Dried leaves and pale blue flowers can be used for making sachets. To store for later use, cut 4-5" pieces from the ends of the branches and store in the freezer. Frozen rosemary is stronger than fresh so adjust your recipes accordingly.
When harvesting rosemary, do not remove more than 20% of the growth at any one time. Take the tip cuttings you need to flavor your recipes, but don't cut the woody branches. Cutting these may irreversibly damage the plant. When you are ready to dry your rosemary, you should cut the sprigs in the early morning. Tie a few together and hang in a warm, dry place. When completely dry, store in plastic bags or jars. You can strip the leaves off the stems or keep them intact to add to a pan while cooking, then remove the stem before serving. The stems, if tough enough, also make excellent skewers for meats and vegetables on the grill, so if you strip the leaves before storing, save the stems also.

In light of everything going on in the world we have implemented some changes to ensure your safety. Our hours will be looking a little different Monday through Friday; we will be having reserved hours for those who are members of the vulnerable population group. 8 am to 9 am will be the time frame set aside for your needs to shop. We are also taking steps to help provide a cleaner environment for you and your loved ones. We have scheduled an employee to come in each morning prior to us opening to clean the store. We also strongly encourage that when you're in the store please practice social distancing. You should be at least 6 ft from others. As of right now we are still not set up to provide services such as curbside assistance. We are trying to do what we can in light of everything going on in the world. We encourage you to practice the safety guidelines that have been ordered by our Governor and Health Department. We appreciate your continued support of our small businesses during these unforeseen difficult times.
