I love this and have bushes of rosemary. I'm assuming one takes the rosemary off the stem. You say to discard the rosemary yet the picture shows it inside the jar. I'm confused. Could you clarify. Thanks.

Hi Wendy,

I placed the entire rosemary bunches in with the salt and some comes off the stems as it warms. I tried to get all of the rosemary out of the salt but it was pretty tough to do so I decided to not stress about it and just remove the stems. I placed some fresh sprigs of rosemary on the top of the salt to add some color when I gave it away.
