Basil is delicious and incredibly aromatic when just picked –

Here are some best practices and tips for keeping that beautiful and fragrant basil crisp and fresh after harvest:

1. Keep in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator, if you have one.

2. Trim under cold running water at the roots and place in a small cup with water (like flowers in a vase).  Place in the refrigerator.

3. Place is a plastic bag with a little bit of paper towel. Put inside the refrigerator.

4. Hang upside down to dry.

As always, please be sure to pick up the produce early – and within the time frame for pick up.  Basil does have a limited life.
