    Rosemary

    ~ Rosemary is an herb in the mint family that has highly aromatic, needle-like leaves. It is native to the Mediterranean region, and the fresh and dried leaves remain an integral part of traditional Mediterranean cooking, including Spanish cuisine.

    The name derives from the Latin words for ‘dew’ and ‘sea’, or dew of the sea because in many locations the rosemary plant needs no other water except the humidity that is carried by the sea breeze that “feeds” it.

    It is said that rosemary was draped around Aprodite when she rose from the sea and was originally born to Ouranos. That is the basis for associating the goddess Aprodite with rosemary. Rosemary is also associasted with the Virgin Mary who was said to have spread her cloak over a white-blossomed rosemary bush, turning the flowers a gorgous sea blue shade, the color most associated with the Virgin Mary.

    In the Middle Ages, rosemary was a symbol of romance and therefore played an integral part of most wedding ceremonies. For instance, brides usually wore fragrant rosemary-based headpieces, and the groom and wedding guests clipped fresh rosemary sprigs to their clothing. It was also a tradition for newlyweds to plant rosemary seedlings; if the plant thrived and grew to maturity, it was a good omen for the marriage.



    Oregano

    ~ Oregano is another aromatic herb in the mint family. It is native to the Mediterranean region as well as the southwestern part of Asia. Oregano combines well with spicy foods (a common trait of Spanish cuisine), which is one of the reasons that oregano remains a staple seasoning throughout most of the regions of Spain.

    Oregano is sometimes called wild marjoram, in which case its close relative is then referred to as sweet marjoram. Oregano leaves are often more flavorful when dried than fresh, and some of the highest quality oregano grown in the warmest environments can be strong enough to almost numb ones tongue.

    Although oregano was not completely unknown to Americans, oregano did greatly increase in popularity in the U.S. after World War II, when returning soldiers brought the delectable “pizza herb” home with them.

    Both rosemary and oregano are quite easy to grow and therefore lend themselves well to home gardening and kitchen container planting. Oregano is a perrenial herb, reaching about 20-80cm tall and leaves reaching 1-4 cm long. The leaves offer the herbal taste and are used in cooking. But the flowers of the oregano plant are in varying shades of purple and are generally 3-4 cm long spikes.


    Did you know . . .

    ~ Rosemary is high in iron, calcium, and Vitamin B6. In addition, rosemary has been shown to increase the shelf-life and heat stability of oils rich in omega-3 (which otherwise can easily become rancid).

    ~ When burned, rosemary gives off a distinct mustard smell as well as a smell similar to that of burning wood, which makes it a popular option for flavoring foods when grilling.

    ~ Hippocrates used oregano as an antiseptic, as well as a cure for a wide variety of stomach and respiratory ailments

    ~ Oregano is still used today in Greece to soothe sore throats
