Basil-the choice herb for summer foods.
Basil and summer go together like peanut-butter and jelly.
Remember to keep the blooms pinched from your basil plants if you wish them keep producing until the last days of the summer months.
Basil needs the heat to produce, so the first cool spell of the fall will be the end of the basil in the garden....enjoy it while it last.
Toss a few leaves into your favorite salad.
Anything with tomatoes will also be perfect with basil.
Summer squash lightly sauteed with basil is just delicious.
Scrambled eggs with basil, basil on a sandwich instead of lettuce is awesome.
Have a special recipe or favorite way of using basil?...please share.
