Bushmanland’s Wild Rosemary – Locally known as Kapokbos
Mild flavoured aromatic herb – somewhere between thyme and rosemary
This type of wild rosemary grows abundantly or our koppies. They are a favourite of our sheep.
Remove leaves from stem. Or cook and discard stem after.
Use as a bed to cook lamb; sprinkle leaves over roast vegetables; blend with buttery sweet potato mash; or mix in with your favourite bread dough.
All year round. Most abundant after rainy season – from January to June.
About the producer:
N’Rougas Farm is in the heart of Bushmanland, just South of the Orange River. Here the stars shine bright, the sheep roam freely and an abundance of indigenous edible plants that have adapted to the arid environment flourish. The farm just has begun a new journey.
Mother and daughter, 4th and 5th generation of landowners, are partnering with a local family who has worked on the land for three generations. Our purpose is to rejuvenate the soil and the spirit on the land we love, producing predator friendly, much-loved lamb and a range of flavourful and health-rejuvenating indigenous plant foods.
