I usually get bunches at the farmers market. You can also spread it on a panini-type sandwich of proscuitto, motzarella, tomato, pesto on french bread and fry panini style. (you could also use smoked ham for a cheaper version). enjoy
guess i'm lucky enough to have a green thumb with the basil, usually i have good luck with most of the plantings i do, of course, thats with a big, big help with my husband, he does the hard work of tilling, helping me weed( he does alot of the weeding ) and he even helps with getting the juice from tomato's. he even planted a second planting of kentucky wonders for me, already had a planting of them, plus yellow and green beans, then he planted a second row of yellow beans, we had so many beans that i picked all the yellows and took them to the auction yesterday, 14 lbs of just yellow, the green i gave to our son to eat, kentuckys i kept for myself, we're eating kentuckys twice a day, not trying to brag, just saying i love to play in the dirt since i got older. AND we love to eat what we grow ourselves
