I prefer using fresh rosemary, which I have growing in my garden. If you use fresh rosemary, be sure to hand-crush the leaves to release their natural oil.

    I love it when you guys give recipes using ingredients I’ve never used before because it makes me feel like I’m on a foodie treasure hunt. My dad loves peanuts so much he should have been born in Georgia 🙂 He also likes healthy snacks so I can’t wait to put this under the tree for him. He’s going to be so excited. Hugs, CoCo
