A few weeks ago, we bought a little purple basil plant at the farmer's market. It has been happily sitting on our step since then and tonight I added it to my pasta sauce. Yum! At the last minute, I garnished everyone's plate with a little bit of the basil and it really added something special. I think that I am going to move the basil to my kitchen counter so that I can be sure to use it more frequently. I'm also going to keep an eye out for some cilantro and flat leaf parsley to round out my kitchen herb garden! I think that they will really add something to my cooking that my jars of dried herbs don't.
Do you use fresh herbs in your kitchen?
