Rosemary is native to many Mediterranean dishes. It has a distinctive aroma and can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes. Rosemary is often used as flavouring, especially for lamb and other roast meats, and is also excellent with roast potatoes. Rosemary can also be sprinkled onto lamb, pork, potatoes or parsnips before roasting. Rosemary can also be added to tomato or red wine sauces.
