I always use fresh basil and love it, but this new stuff we got the other day that is grown near where we live has such a full flavor! Honestly, I have never tasted a basil leaf that is so flavorful!
You put it in a jar, keep an inch of water in it, and it keeps it alive. I am guessing that’s why it tastes so wonderful. You just pull off some leaves when you are ready to cook!
