Frontier Co-Op Organic Whole Rosemary Leaf Description
- Rosmarinus Officinalis
Rosemary’s woody scent and minty flavor bring a balsamic deliciousness to sweet and savory dishes alike.
Small fields of rosemary dot the landscape within Spain’s Sierra Mariola National Park, a beloved natural landmark just off the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. The rosemary fields, protected from chemical drift and synthetic fertilizers, sit among the park’s pine forests and patches of yew, teak, maple, ashe, and oak. Farmers use sustainable farming practices on the land within the park to peacefully coexist with the natural plants and wildlife. Techniques such as terracing to avoid soil erosion and using the trees as natural windbreaks allows for the non-intrusive coexistence of agricultural commerce and natural, protected beauty. This is where Frontier’s organic rosemary grows. It’s an arid land that forces the plants it sustains to use the sparse water efficiently — creating rosemary high in essential oil and full of flavor.
