Pitcherful of Basil

Oh, how happy we are for Farmers’ Market season!  Today, we eyed some lovely heirloom eggplants and scored a big bunch of basil.

Basil loves to be stored bouquet-style in a pitcher or vase of water…  Some folks like to put the vase in the refrigerator, covered loosely with a plastic bag, but as we have no room in the fridge, and as we enjoy the sight (and smell!) of a basil bouquet, ours is livin’ it up on the the kitchen table.

Stay cool out there, everyone — it hit 104 here today!  Whew.

    I love basil… it smells so full and wonderful… and so fragrant. Good luck.
