I like to shop online…and that includes shopping for produce! Danelle at OneFarm, understands that, and she puts her produce online once a week. I shop, place the order, and pick it up a few days later!
This time, I ordered a Bucketful of Basil! She let me take the bucket home (so I need to return it full of something….hmmmmmm) and it was then that it dawned on me that I actually had to DO something with all the Basil!
Bucket of Fresh from One Farm Basil
I asked some friends on Facebook and they came up with 368 different things I could do with it! I settled on these:
Dump out the Basil Salt on a cookie sheet and bake until it is dry.
I spooned the Basil Pesto—-minus the Parmesan Cheese—-into some Ice Cube trays and then bagged them up for later use.
Frozen Cubes of Chopped Basil
It only takes a second to mix the butter and basil into a loves Basil Butter!
I take the fresh Basil leaves off the stems and give them a “rough chop” as Ina would say.
Mmmmmmmm. Take a big whiff! Can’t you just SMELL the Basil goodness?!

I love the sweet flowers I found in my batch of Basil from One Farm
Pouring Salt into the Food Processor
I stored my Basil Salt in a tall glass Weck Jar. I’ll decant it into smaller containers to use at the table and for cooking.
