Fresh Basil

Image

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!

    • It actually has roots on it, and the water keeps it alive, Not sure for how long….I’m curious about that. Interesting huh?
      I really would like to grow my own herbs….have no idea how!

      • LOL….ya, that does seem a shame. Probably better to keep it in the soil if you do that. I don’t know much about these things though! πŸ˜‰
