In the absence of muslin, any ideas what I can put a few sprigs of rosemary in to stop the leaves falling off and therefore rendering it inedible to dd2?

Any old-fashioned (clean!) cottone hankies?

empty out a teabag and put it in there
then sew it up

a sock?

Like CD but disposable coffee filter so you don't get the taste of the tea

The toe of a pair of (clean!) tights.

You can also tie them together with an elastic band ...

Can't you pick the rosemary out before you serve? Otherwise a bit of old stocking.

Thanks everyone. I just thought elastic bands, tights etc would melt in the saucepan. I can pick the bits of rosemary off, but the idea was to flavour the soup without having any bits in it.

you could infuse the rosemary for a bit in boiling water then put the water in

make the stock base separately with the herbs then sieve before adding the rest of the ingredients or blitz the rosemary into a powder

Donk! Thank you! H is missing one, but he won't know. Fab idea. I had visious of poisoning dds with elastic bands, tights, etc, but it's smelling really nice now! Thanks!

WWB, where have you been? Missed ya!

Dear sister, her son, me and dd2 all enjoyed it.

Thank you!

WWB, where have you been?

Sorry, missed your question first time!

Haven't been around too much, MN doesn't have quite the same spell over me as it used to! Nice to see you around, EG - how's things?
