Basil and more

One of the first things we did when we started out ‘populating’ our little garden was growing basil. And, since then we have gotten used to throwing in a couple of basil leaves in everything we cook at home. Besides, of course, the flavour, the leaves bring about a different colour to any dish.
The ways of nature ensure that the four different kind of basil that we grow have different flavours and texture so one can keep experimenting with different quantities of each or even one of them.
The harsh summer, which is now under way, has dried up most of the leaves though there are enough flowers on the plants to keep the flavour coming!

    My basil plants are really taking off in the recent heat! I dry leaves and I also freeze them for winter use. And the fragrance in the summer wind is just outstanding!

    1. Basil is a great herb. Thai cuisine is not complete without it. We use a bit in everything we cook😝
