ON THE BACK BURNER

Oct 7

I have a plastic bag of basil sitting on my deck. I figure that there must be 20 lbs of basil in the bag. I will start making pesto  and see how much I can make before I run out of baggies that I plan to freeze it in.  To facilitate the process, I just use olive oil and basil for the storage .Then when I need it , I add the rest of the ingredients. Right now, I just want to save all of that fresh basil. About a month ago , I made basil salt, which I store in the fridge . It is really really good. Especially on all of these heirloom tomatoes that I have been feasting on. I love getting all of this produce from my grandson. Now I wish he worked on a cattle farm. Think of what he could bring home then.
