    I harvested mine for the first time this season last week, chopped it in a food processor with a little olive oil, and froze it in ice cube trays. The next day I popped them out and put the cubes in a freezer ziploc. Worked great! And to think of all those years that I went through weeks of drying basil in a dehumidifier.

    Our basil needs to be picked and eaten and it’s much too early! The heat brought it on early, which is both good and bad. Happy Weekend! You must be returning to work Monday.

    I’m late with my basil–due to travels in June, I just planted it. After viewing your beautiful photo, I think I’ll splurge and buy a basil plant. Basil is an herb which at least to me doesn’t translate well to dry. I definitely plan to try Chrissie’s method. Have a great weekend!

    My favorite herb – especially when combined with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Mmm…

    Happy weekend!

    I know your basil must smell as good as it looks! I’d love some with fresh tomatoes, garlic and oil…. make that a lot of basil.

    Mmmm … mine is actually doing pretty well in spite of the heat/drought, but yours looks much cooler ;^)
