My boyfriend and I harvested some of our herb garden a couple of days ago, which contained two basil plants, a flat leaf parsley, and a cilantro plant. We lost the cilantro recently to a vicious summer thunderstorm, but the basil and parsley pulled through with flying colors!
A majority of the fresh herbs went to infusing some olive oil, along with some fresh garlic and peppercorns. We dried the rest. Some of the dried basil was even used this morning to top an extremely delicious frittata.
Please disregard the bug on the basil plant...
RIP cilantro. At least we got to use you for some shrimp tacos.
