Throughout history, rosemary has been used as a medicine, cultural symbol, and in spiritual practices (Herbco, 2017). Today it is one of the most popular herbs available.
When it comes to health, Rosemary is a great source of:
- Pinene: a terpene that aids in memory retention and alertness. Rosemary has been shown to improve cognitive deficits and can support those with Alzheimer's disease
- Antioxidants: helps stop damage to cells that can cause diseases like cancer, heart disease, and more
And potatoes are a wonderful source of:
- Fiber: supports digestive health, lowers cholesterol, helps you feel fuller longer and reduce appetite
- Vitamin C: supports the immune system, aids in bone formation & wound healing, helps protect the body from infections
The skin on potatoes has tons more nutrients such as potassium, niacin, and iron.
About the Recipe
Most diets will tell you that you can't eat potatoes because they're loaded with starch. When it comes to the holidays, however, mashed potatoes are a staple — so we decided to make them a little bit healthier by infusing some rosemary into that decadent butter we would be adding. We also left the skin on our potatoes because they contain lots of nutrients, and with all the other yumminess in these
- Place rosemary in LEVO herb pod; place butter in basin. Set at 165°F for 30 minutes
- Cover potatoes with water in a large pot. Boil over medium heat for 30 minutes or until tender
- You can use a fork to see how tender the potatoes have become
- Drain potatoes and, while still hot, mix with remaining ingredients
- We used an electric mixer, but you could whip these by hand, too!
Opportunities for Cannabinoid Infusion
If you'd like to enhance your mashed potatoes with cannabinoids, you can add an available tincture to your recipe or add available cannabis flower to your LEVO pod.
We added 2 droppers from Rosebud's 350mg bottle of full-spectrum CBD oil to this recipe for a total CBD concentration of approximately 50mg (1 dropper = approximately 25mg CBD).
Rosebud CBD oil is made from CBD rich hemp flowers grown on US soil under the Oregon sun. Rosebud CBD rich oil is comprised of CO2 derived hemp extract mixed with fractionated coconut oil, MCT (medium-chain triglycerides). It is pesticide, herbicide and solvent free.
