Basil

Posted on August 19, 2017 with 0 comments

Not a real post, just a quick reminder...

The more you (correctly) prune basil... the more it grows!

Three weeks ago, I harvested, and made about 10 CUPS of pesto (just basil and EVOO.  The garlic, Parmigiano, and nuts go in fresh each time I use some).

Today, I harvested again.  There was even more basil, and I'm estimating at least 12-14 cups of pesto. And as it's still August, there should be at least two more harvests.

So, seriously, trust me:  multiple harvests... multiple pesto productions.

And remember to clear space in your freezer!!!
