Storage tip: Before storing woody herbs like rosemary in a plastic bag in the refrigerator, wrap stems in a damp paper towel.
Cooking tip: When cutting rosemary, make sure your knife is sharp. A dull knife bruises the leaves and makes them taste bitter instead of helping to release potent oils.
Fun fact: Rosemary may be brain food: In ancient Greece, students placed sprigs in their hair while they were studying for exams.
