I have just made tincture of rosemary flowers. It is not a job for the lazy. Our hillside is covered in rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis), so there is no shortage. But I wanted just the flowers. Only 20g of flowers, but that’s a bagful. It took hours to pick.

I’ll have a kilo of flowers please…
I love doing this stuff – the mixture of making something, the chemistry and science, and the fact that is made for someone else. Cooking is the same – it is invention, science, and love, warmed up together.
