Rosemary originates from the Mediterranean region but has made its way to grow throughout Europe. It symbolized memory and fidelity and was used in ancient medicine. Its taste is piney and pungent yet slightly bitter. It is commonly used in Italian and Mediterranean blend seasonings, so you are likely familiar with the taste. Rosemary pairs deliciously with animal proteins, stuffing, soups, bread, tomatoes, root vegetables, and even beverages.
