Q.

Dried Rosemary has White Fuzz on it

Zone 11001 | AngieLu930 added on November 17, 2016 | Answered

This year, I grew Rosemary, harvested, and dried the sprigs. I just went to pull off the leaves from stems and notice that all the leaves are covered with a white fuzz. Upon harvesting, my plant did not have powdery mildew or at least I thought it didn't. Is this dried Rosemary inedible? Dusty? I am trying to give the dried herbs away to friends and need to know asap, please. Thanks for your time, Angelica

Your Rosemary appears to have mold on the needles. It may have been to damp to dry properly.

I would dispose of the Herb that has any signs of mold on them.
Here is an article that will refresh you on how to dry Rosemary.
