This was my beautiful, full basil plant just a few weeks ago. Wasn’t it beautiful? We got a lot of good use out of it this summer. Since we’ve had a few rain storms it’s not doing so well. I think I’m going to be experimenting with freezing and drying basil leaves this weekend.
I have also been able to squeeze a few cherry tomatoes out of my last tomato plant. But I think he’s going to be following the basil into the compost heap this weekend. I just consider myself lucky that we are able to use them both for so long.
We used the last of the tomatoes and basil last night for Chicken Pesto. It was so delicious.
Has anyone had any luck freezing or storing basil plants or even just pesto?
