READY IN: 10mins

This makes a nice hostess gift if you pack the ingredients in a pretty basket with the directions or treat your own guests to something special. You will need 4 white washcloths to make this.

Wow! I bought several cheap bamboo fiber washclothes and picked rosemary from my yard. Very elegant! Even the young ones enjoyedthe freshen up cloths.


  1. Put the rosemary sprigs into a large microwave safe bowl and fill it about 3/4 full of water. Microwave on high for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the water is very hot.
  2. Remove the bowl from the oven and add the 4 white washcloths. Let them soak for a few minutes. Carefully (they will be hot!) remove them from the water and wring them out. Fold the washcloths in half, place 1 rosemary sprig on each cloth, and roll them up like a cigar. Put them onto a microwave safe plate and heat them on low for 1 minute. Give them to your guests when they sit down at the table.
