Sun dried tomatoes typically come from Southern Italy preserved in oil or crushed to prepare a sauce used for pasta, pizza or bruschetta. Sun dried tomatoes can also be ground and used as a spice to season different kinds of dishes. The Zest & Zing ground sun dried tomatoes are intensely flavoursome, with a sweet and savoury flavour.
Sun dried tomatoes have a very particular flavour, both sweet and savoury, reminiscent of summer and sunny landscapes. This red powder is perfect to season pasta or to be added to tinned tomato sauce to create a more intense taste. If combined with olive oil, it becomes a delicious dressing for raw vegetables or salads and it pairs really well with dried herbs, such as rosemary, oregano, basil and peppermint. Another good idea is also to add it to the dough of bread or muffins.

The name "rosemary" derives from the Latin for "dew" (ros) and "sea" (marinus), or "dew of the sea". Rosemary is an aromatic evergreen shrub with leaves similar to hemlock needles. It is native to the Mediterranean and Asia, but is reasonably hardy in cool climates. According to myth, the Virgin Mary is said to have spread her blue cloak over a white-blossomed rosemary bush when she was resting, and the flowers turned blue. The shrub then became known as the "Rose of Mary". Rosemary was considered sacred to ancient Egyptians, Romans and Greeks.
Rosemary leaves are an excellent choice for seasoning roast lamb, pork, chicken and turkey and stuffing. They have a bitter, astringent taste and a characteristic aroma which complements many cooked foods. When roasted with meats or vegetables, the leaves impart a mustard-like aroma with an additional fragrance of charred wood compatible with barbecued foods.
