The #1 one product that just flies off the shelves at The Rosemary House is our very own ROASTMARY®. This was one of the first seasonings on our shelves and it was, and still is, a winner! Our mother's dearest friend Teresa Kuentz, was an excellent cook with an Italian heritage who always used garlic, salt, pepper and rosemary in her cooking. That winning combination formed the basis for this timeless seasoning. My mother (saving on the cost of long distance calls) would write to Teresa and ship a batch of the blend for tasting and tweaking. Teresa would then phone with an instruction - more rosemary, or less salt, or more pepper, and another batch would be made and sent off for the taste test, until finally, she had her dear friends stamp of approval. 
We are proud to say Roastmary has now been sold in all 50 states, 14 countries and counting. It's perfect for chicken, pork roasts, baked potatoes, even garlic bread. We've been told it is delicious on everything except perhaps ice cream!

As part of our 50th Anniversary celebration for The Rosemary House, we honor these two remarkable women with their strong bond of friendship that has exceeded 50 years. They shared an amazing love and enthusiasm coupled with energy, inspiration, and creativity that spilled over into all their endeavors. We were blessed to learn life's lesson's from these amazing women.
Bertha and Teresa (L) shared smiles, laughter and busy hands when they were together.
