Basil Harvest? Final? One more? for Foodie Friday


This is my most recent basil harvest, my third of the season.  The first harvest became basil vinegar.  The second harvest became basil pesto.  This harvest was chopped in a food processor with a little olive oil and frozen in an ice cube tray.  The cubes were then popped out and stored in a ziploc bag.  Ready to add summery basil flavor to soups and pastas all winter long. 

I’m hoping to get one more harvest in before it gets too cold at night and the basil says bye-bye.



This will be my entry for Foodie Friday at Designs by Gollum!

    You probably get one more harvest down there. Up here? Well, I feel like we’re on borrowed warmth at 62 today. Of course, it’s been raining like no one’s business all month, so we’ve paid the price.

    I picked a large batch last week. I hope mine lasts for a few weeks more. I do the ice cube tray thing too. There is nothing like fresh (even if it’s frozen) basil.

    My basil did not do well this year, sadly…. maybe it was planted to late – and our bone dry summer. Well done on your wonderful harvest. Enjoy!
