Basil ...

I was recently bemoaning the fact that I didn't have any fresh basil to use in a recipe when, lo and behold, I came across this clever little tip, which you may already know about. But, if you knew, why didn't you tell me??? The basil in my photo is from our local farmer's market. A gorgeous BIG bunch can be had for only $1.00. I popped a stem in a tall pitcher. The basil appears to be quite happy! My favorite thing thing to do with a large amount of fresh basil is to make pesto. My daughter will be sharing her recipe for pesto in this space soon! Watch for it!
