We hope that you enjoyed starting your Basil Vinegar yesterday. Today, we are pressing Basil. There are many ways to press herbs. We use books in our family. The plant should be fresh, and free of excess moisture. The pressing can be something that you or your children can observe again and again. We like to look at the herbs that we work with from month to month and year to year. They bring back fond memories of when we gathered the herb together, and further extend our relationship with the herb(s) into the fall and winter months. How does your family press herbs?
To learn more about Basil, we have made the current issue on Basil available to you and your family!
