    Default How to cook with Rosemary

    When I make soup I toss in a sprig of thyme.
    Its small leaves are no problem and I just pull out the twigs at the end.

    Rosemary however leaves dozens of spiky leafs behind.
    I could give it a good zap with the blender, but if I want chunky soup I can't.

    I can't be bothered to chop it up first.

    Any ideas, can you pop it into something ?
    Any gadgets ?
    Thanks

    Leave the rosemary as a sprig and pull it out at the end?

    By then all the spiky leaves have dropped off.
    I searched on Ebay for "Cotton food filter bag"
    Might do the trick !

    Just buy some muslin.
    Cut a large square and tie it into a dock Whittington type of bag containing the Rosemary.
    Dead easy...and cheap!

    I've also had a quick look on line....depending on the width it's between 2-3 per metre.
    You can make lots with that !

    Wish I could stop reading the title as "How to cook with Delia" or some other celebrity chef.

    Use old (clean) hankies if you have any lurking in your drawers.
