Meet My Friends, The Basils- They Add So Much To My Life
Basil is the best herb; the smell is incredible and it adds so much flavor to food. This is my Sweet Basil growing in my herb garden. He enjoys living on the south side of my home where there is sun all day. The flower stalks produce tiny white bell shaped flowers. You should pinch the flowers off before they grow but they are so pretty, I hate to do that.
Did you know you can freeze basil leaves if you have an abundant crop. Wash them, let them air-dry for several days (lay them out on paper-towel lined cookie sheets), then put them in an airtight freezer bag. Freezing is the best method of storage since Basil loses some flavor when dried.
Opal Basil is very pretty, and a little bit spicier than sweet basil. I grow both of these.
Sweet Basil is the most popular, Lemon Basil adds a lemony odor and tang, and Cardinal Basil has burgundy stems and flowers, Thai Basil is also purple with a more intense flavor than Sweet Basil. Then there’s the hybrid Round Midnight Basil, a deep purple that has shiny aromatic leaves that give off an intense aroma and flavor.
All can be grown in your garden and will add so much flavor and taste to your food. Hmm, I wonder if they could make a basil perfume?
