Rosemary, a flowering evergreen, is an aromatic member of the mint family native to the Mediterranean region where it is utilized as a treasured culinary spice.
Rosemary adds a delightful flavor to cuisine all across the world. The younger leaves are preferred for a sweeter flavor, standing up well to cooking, even at high temperatures. The smell of rosemary is piney and fresh; familiar but also distinctive. It blends well in tomato soups, sauces and stews, rosemary is baked into breads and crackers, and is classically used as a rub for pork and lamb.
Anne of Cleves, Henry the Eighth’s 4th wife, wore a rosemary wreath at their wedding. The wreath symbolized fidelity, love, abiding friendship and remembrance of the life the woman had led prior to her marriage. At that time, wealthy bridal couples would also present a gilded branch of rosemary to each wedding guest.
Rosemary also has a history of being associated with remembrance. Greek students in ancient times would wear rosemary wreaths during exams.
