Rosemary has recently become a highly desired spice in modern cooking. Rosemary is native to the Mediterranean and Central Europe, and Regency gets ours from Morocco. Here, Rosemary naturally grows to much longer length and bright yellow leaves with fuller flavour including orange and caraway notes, known in trade as Gold quality. It has many culinary and medicinal uses, and is most popular for cooking roast meats and stuffings. Our Rosemary is already removed from the branches, and is this much more convenient for use in cooking than fresh. In most cases, it also tastes better!

Industry Knowledge... Rosemary is normally sold in the trade as long or short stems, but did you know that short stems are merely long "whole" stems cut down? Shorter stems are easier to hide defects in, and also cheaper to transport, but the flavour loss in short stems is much greater and much faster.
