Any suggestions for using fresh rosemary? I have a huge bush and most recipes are for chicken, pork, and other trif.

Well locally lamb is very pricey. I looked at the price list at our farmer's market this weekend and most cuts were $15.00 a pound. I miss when we used to raise lambs and later turkeys.

I second all of above but add it also to pumpkin soup or any soup really, on roast vegetables, infused into olive oil & used on anything!
Also can make a tincture for a rinse for your hair (smells beautiful & strengthening for it) or as a room freshener ;D
I love rosemary so much it is a border around most of our veggie beds, makes a formal looking feature if trimmed or cottage look if spilling over!

Actually my sodium laurel sulfate free shampoo is rosemary scented. It's made by Avalon.

Mr. Winter Squash: Did you really have to ask?  :D
Lovely with stewed apple, too.
Infuse your EVOO.
Make tea.

Mr. Green Egg: Pop 'em in there to infuse your turkeys and whatnot.
Use the twigs as skewers.

Go to google for thousands more ideas.  ;)

Any food bank or kitchens nearby? Garden glut can be good thing for neighbors, too.

I use it as all those previously mentioned but also in most of my soups and stews.
I am fortunate to have my backyard and front planters full of rosemary and lavender bushes.
I make my own "herbes de provence" with the French thyme, sage, tarragon and basil from my herb garden and my rosemary and lavender plants. :) I tend to grab a pinch out of the crock by my stove and add it to season anything I am cooking!

Love the shampoo idea! ;)

I've used it in my spaghetti sauce before, it gives it a different kind of kick.
