Good morning to you. How are you doing today?
I hope you are having a productive first week of August.
Last week, I did some work in the garden. There was a lot of basil growing, so I picked a bunch.
Not everyone will agree, but I think my herbs need a good cleaning with water when they come in from the garden. I do not use any chemicals in my plants, only natural compost and soil. In trying to stay as natural as possible, we have bugs. And spiders, and caterpillars, and crawly things. Therefore, a good washing is in order. But do try to be mindful of the fact these are delicate leaves. I just prefer my protein from other sources than bug, ya know.
This is a great way to have fresh basil on hand, clean and ready to go.
You now have clean and ready to use basil leaves for all of your dishes. What will you use them in?
