As we drift into the last days of summer, my garden is working overtime. My tiny, fresh basil plants that nearly drowned in the thunderstorms before I could plant my herb garden are now as vibrant and bushy as the tomato plants. With so much fresh basil on hand, I am finding many great uses for the basil leaves.
Here are eight of the things I’ve done with fresh basil this summer –
Classic Basil Pesto from Saveur.com
A Settebello Margherita Pizza in action
Spicy Thai Basil Chicken from Cooking Light
Cool ice cube trays from IKEA.com
What’s your favorite fresh basil recipe?
