To Buy: Fresh rosemary can be bought in bunches from most vegetable retailers. Dried rosemary is available either as whole leaves or ground powder. Buy dried herbs which are well-packed, as thin cellophane bags do not keep in the aroma and flavour.
To Store: Store fresh rosemary in a jug of water on the kitchen bench for up to 5 days. Keep dried rosemary in an airtight container away from heat and light.
Tips & Tricks: Add ground rosemary to mashed potato to serve with lamb cutlets.
