How to prepare and use fresh rosemary:
First you should rinse the bunches under cold water in a colander to remove any dirt or debris that might be hanging onto the branches or needles.
After it's rinsed you can pat them dry and then you can decide to use the rosemary in full sprigs or in this case you want to remove the needles from the branch.
Do this by holding the stem and running your thumb and index finger down the stem and pushing the needles off the main branch.
