Rosemary

At 364 ORAC units per teaspoon, rosemary has the lowest antioxidant levels of the Seven Super Spices. What it lacks in antioxidant quantity, however, it more than makes up for in versatility. Rosemary complements a wide variety of foods; it’s delicious when stuffed under the skin of roasted chicken, and is perfect with lamb, roasted vegetables and potato dishes of all ilk. It also appears as an ingredient in herbal tea and makes a lovely garnish: try poking a sprig upright into a ramekin of paté or butter, or spear it through a small piece of meat such as lamb chops.

You can even grow your own rosemary from an existing plant. Just clip a 10-15cm shoot, strip some leaves from the bottom and plant it directly into soil. If you do a little research first, you can choose a cultivar based on how erect the plant will stand and what color flowers it’ll produce. It looks lovely as filler for an outdoor garden, or charming (and close at hand!) in a cute flower pot in your kitchen.
