Recipe

  1. Blitz the two end slices to coarse crumbs in a food processor or similar.

  2. In a frying pan heat the oil on a low to medium heat and use a garlic press or fine grater to add the garlic to the pan. Fry without colouring the garlic.

  3. Add the breadcrumbs and coat in the garlic oil, cook until golden.

  4. Stir regularly to ensure even cooking and prevent the crumbs from burning.

  5. Strip the rosemary leaves from the stalks roughly chop then add to the pan and mix. The stalks can be retained to add to soups.

  6. Zest the lemon (ideally unwaxed but if waxed give the lemon a wash under warm water with a coarse sponge). The lemon can of course be retained for further use.

  7. Season with salt.
