What to do with a ton of rosemary leaves?
I just stripped several rosemary branches to use as skewers. I now have approximately 3 cups of leaves and need some ideas.
Let them dry and use them all winter. The flavor is so much better than the store-bought dried rosemary.
If you have a leg of lamb sitting around the kitchen, make a paste of rosemary and garlic to coat the roast.
Sometimes I love rosemary bread, and sometimes it has way too much rosemary in it. There's a delicate balance there, but when you do it right, it's heavenly.
...and once they're dry, you can crumble in your palm or use a mortar and pestle to break them up before use.
yesyes, dry them....they have *great* medicinal value and properties, and have loads of antioxidants!
I freeze or dry mine but also love to infuse vinegars with rosemary. Not only that but I enjoy making rosemary jellies and simple syrup. You can also infuse olive oil with rosemary and garlic. I also add a few peppercorns to the simmering oil but you can add whatever you like.
