What to do, what to do.

I took the boys to the Gardens on Friday. It was a busy day there and we had to park almost all the way in the back. As we were leaving, we were approached by a man carrying this plant.
He told me he had just finished a show at the Gardens and had this beautiful rosemary plant. He was leaving straight from there to go on vacation and wouldn't be able to take care of it. He then asked if I would like it. Okay, sure.
So, now I have this show quality rosemary plant in my home. The thing is... I have no idea what to do with a rosemary plant. I know rosemary is an herb/spice, but I don't know that I've ever used it. And if I have... I'm sure it was in the dried form... not the fresh form. And how do I care for this plant anyway just to keep it alive, let alone use it as a food product.
Help.

Awesome!! Fresh Rosemary is yummy and you can use it just like the dry...usually it's a tbls of fresh when the recipe calls for a tsp of dry. You can finely chop it or leave it whole for texture!It's great in a rub on chicken or pork! I'm jealous!! Have fun!

PS....it's a perennial so you can plant it outside and it will come back year after year if you don't want it in the house at least my mom's rosemary plant does! Have fun!!

Agree with Taryn. Use it in my Stuffed pork chops (just a dab will do ya) and it's heavily.

Lucky dog you! I couldn't tell you how to care for it but you could probably find info on the web. We use rosemary on grilled chicken, or mixed rosemary, basil, lime juice into mayo and it is great on BLTs, grill chicken, etc. Enjoy!
