An abundance of basil

I have a large pot on my patio filled with basil. I've cut it back, but that only means it will grow back even more thickly. I don't know what to do with it all. There's only so much pesto a person can eat.

I'm can dry some of it, but then what?

I am appealing to your wisdom. What do you do with an abundance of basil?


  1. Pesto, of course. A fabulous way to preserve basil that the Italians invented eons ago and use still today. (Because yum.) You could also have a dinner party and do a beautiful caprese salad or bruschetta.

    1. If I decide on a dinner party, you are going to have to come.

    2. Yes, please! Just plan it on a weekend...
