Can I Use Dead Rosemary in Cooking
My 2 year old, 2 foot high Rosemary plant died this past month. I'm pretty sure it just dried out. (My dh thought I watered it, and I thought he had.) When removing the green, but dried leaves I noticed that many of them have a white spot at the end of the leaf where it is attached to the stem. I found 2 spots of what looks like mealy bug on one of the branches. Could the white spots on the leaves be mealy bug? What do you think about using the dried leaves in cooking? Not sure if I should be worried or not.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
