This Rosemary is a Chef’s Favorite!

Rosemary can elevate just about any dish it touches, which is why it's been a favorite of chefs for centuries. It's the quintessential rub for meats - chicken, steak, wild game, fish. It makes vegetables sing and raises roasted potatoes to a savory work of art. It adds zing to after-dinner drinks. It even works on fruit. (Don't believe us? Next time you have some not-quite-ripe peaches, give them a few minutes run in the oven with a coat of rosemary and brown sugar and check back with us!)

The problem is that you buy a bunch of rosemary at the store and you only intend to use it in one recipe, so what you don't use languishes in the back of the fridge until it turns brown, then black, then to a nasty mush that may actually take on a life of its own.

Let us offer you an alternative. The hands down favorite rosemary of top chefs worldwide is Tuscan Blue (Rosmarinus officinalis 'Tuscan Blue'). Nature Hills sells top grade Tuscan Blue that you can grow in your warm summer garden or on your kitchen windowsill. You'll always have a fresh supply of the most flavorful rosemary you can buy available at your fingertips!

Tuscan Blue is super easy to care for and very hardy. (It can't abide cold weather or wet feet, though, so plant it accordingly.) In zone 8-10 it grows into a shrub that will bloom sky-blue flowers in spring and summer.

Use sprigs in olive oil. Use the firm stems as barbecue skewers. Dry the leaves for the winter. This is one herb that you really shouldn't live without. Order yours today. We know your mouth is watering to try those peaches!

  • Hardy herb
  • Great in the garden or containers
  • Harvest the leaves and stems year-round
