Basil is a very prolific herb, and adds great robust flavor to any dish.  If your basil plants are giving you a bumper crop, don’t let it go to waste.  Make some pesto and enjoy this light sandwich that screams summer!  Or even better, freeze extra pesto to savor the summer flavor throughout the fall and winter.

Make Your Own: Peppermint Extract

Peppermint in an invasive plant and with one or two plants you’ll find yourself with such an abundance that you’ll be giving it away.  We routinely add it to tea, dehydrate it for wintertime tea, and make peppermint extract.

Peppermint extract is useful for many things.  It can be added to drinks, desserts, or even bath and beauty products.  And it’s easy to make!
