Although rosemary is native to the Mediterranean, it now grows throughout much of the temperate regions in Europe and America. Rosemary has been a prized seasoning and natural medicine for millennia. Part of rosemary's popularity came from the widespread belief that rosemary stimulated and strengthened the memory, a quality for which it is still traditionally used. In ancient Greece, students would place rosemary sprigs in their hair when studying for exams, and mourners would also throw the fragrant herb into the grave of the deceased as a symbol of remembrance. In olde England, rosemary's ability to fortify the memory transformed it into a symbol of fidelity, and it played an important role in the costumes, decorations and gifts used at weddings. Rosemary oil was first extracted in the 14th century, after which it was used to make Queen of Hungary water, a very popular cosmetic used at that time. In the 16th and 17th centuries, rosemary became popular as a digestive aid in apothecaries. Recently, as modern research focuses on the beneficial active components in rosemary, our appreciation for this herb's therapeutic as well as culinary value has been renewed.

Rosemary is a good source of the minerals iron and calcium, as well as dietary fiber. Fresh has 25% more manganese (which is somehow lost in the process of drying) and a 40% less calcium and iron, probably due to the higher water content.

  8. Rosemary is a great combo with the garlic and chicken. Although the fresh ones are a bit difficult to be found where I am, I use the dried ones too.

  13. Great recipe! ;D
    I only got to taste of rosemary this year and I love it immediately! I seldom used spices in my cooking, esp when I'm cooking Asian food most of the time. Oh boy! How much have I been missing all these while! lol

    Have a great week ahead! ;)

  14. Oh Christine, this looks so healthy and tasty at the same time. I will definately give it a try.

  15. I like that you used dried rosemary. My husband doesn't mind dried rosemary but he thinks the fresh is too much like "pine needles" even when it's chopped. I only use the dried. Great post.

  29. Rosemary and garlic really do combine for great flavor. I'm sure this would go over well in our house. This is the first year I've grown rosemary, and I'm really hoping I can keep it alive in the house this winter. There's something so nice about fresh rosemary. If it doesn't last, though, I'll just be usin' dried. ;) We'll see!
