Aromatherapy in the kitchen. That’s what we call it when nuts are roasting in the oven. Add to those yummy smelling nuts a bunch of chopped fresh herbs and you have a delicious combination of flavors and delicious aromas. We like to use whatever herb is plentiful in the garden. Today we used fresh rosemary to share with our friends at the Cancer Wellness Center!
Rosemary is not only for remembrance, but for nutrition too. It reminds us of good food and good health for many reasons but the most important being that it stimulates the immune system. It also is used to increase circulation and improving digestion. The fragrant flavor balances both the forest and the sea. The memorable health benefit makes it an indispensable herb for every kitchen.
