    Mmmm... Basil is easy to grow and SO aromatic when it is freshly picked. I like cooking with it and also enjoy smelling it in my house. It's sooo good in spaghetti sauce!

    One nice *(and kind of unique)* way to use basil: place one raw shrimp on a large basil leaf, top with a sundried tomato and a small piece of bacon, wrap the whole parcel tightly and then skewer it with a toothpick. Repeat the process until you have a bunch of shrimp "packets". Place all of them on a cookie sheet and bake until the shrimp is white/opaque.

    I keep a large pot of basil just outside my back door - not far from the kitchen! So much easier and cheaper than buying it at the store. Love it in many things, including pesto. I use half basil, half kale and whip up a big jar which keeps well in the fridge or freezer.

    I have 2 different kinds of basil in my backyard and I always put them in the freezer for out of the season.
