Apart from culinary and medicinal purpose rosemary shoots, flowers and leaves are used in ceremonies such as weddings and festivals for decorating banquet halls as incense to ward off bad influences.

Maybe a little shake on the RAM Dimms will speed up your system - LOL

But seriously, the wife always sprinkles some rosemary over the roast potatos before they go in the oven. Tasts very good.
Assuming that roast potatoes equals baked potatoes in American vernacular, I'm wondering if it would be better to sprinkle it on them after cooking, rather than before, since A Guy's article said that it should be added as late as possible, to prevent the heat from destroying it's properties?

I think most recipes say to do it at the start with a little oil.

I believe it is used as flavoring in most cases, not for it's attributes

Myself I prefer Thyme on roast potatoes.

A Guy,

I suppose, I was just going by this from your article:

Quote:
In order to keep the fragrance and flavor intact, the herb is generally added to cooking recipes at the last moments, since prolonged cooking would result in the evaporation of its essential oils.

That's true for most herbs. The problem with rosemary is that is is a really hard herb and you don't want uncooked bits as they are not very nice.

I've always wondered if there was an underlying significance to the inclusion of parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme in Scarborough Fair?

I don't think so. It just scans well.
