Rosemary Brush



Now let’s be honest about this – getting out the barbecue is a bit of a faff! So much so that I hardly ever bother. I am always on the look out for something which can make the whole messy and time consuming business a little easier. Last year I came across this fun and convenient little tip. Snip a few sturdy pieces of rosemary off the bush and tie them together. You then have a flavoursome, efficient AND disposable brush to apply oil, barbecue sauce etc.
I also put a couple of sprigs of rosemary straight on the charcoal. It gives off a wonderful smell as it smoulders. If you don’t grow rosemary at the moment then please give it a try. It is happiest in well drained soil and a sunny aspect.

    I love haloumi. And rosemary! Great idea to use the rosemary as a basting brush. I also love using the rosemary as the skewer itself – just take off the leaves (and use them in a marinade), sharpen the end with knife and shove all of your vegetables, meats and cheese onto the rosemary twig. It infuses a gorgeously subtle flavour into the food and smells wonderful on the BBQ. Keeps the food moist too!

      I shall try your rosemary skewer idea next time I feel like making vegetable kebabs.
