Love Your Basil: Lemon Basil

R.WerstRamona Werst has a love for growing, caring for, and cooking with basil. There are over 30 different varieties of basil in her current collection, and she is adding to her collection all the time. She creates recipes to use with different basils and will teach you how to Love Your Basil! Visit her blog, www.ramonasbasilgarden.com, to download her free e-book, Love Your Basil.

My love for basil started by wanting to enhance my culinary skills, but once I started collecting this amazing herb and cooking with it I wanted to share with everyone how to grow, care for, and cook with basil.

Lemon basil is beautiful and aromatic. When you press leaves
between your fingers you can smell a light lemony scent.

Summer is fast approaching! I always think of refreshing beverages, salads, cooking out on the grill and fancy delicious fruit desserts.

Wonderful information! I have lots of lemon basil that l dry mostly and use in making my own ranch dressing. Really want to find many ways to use it dried as well as fresh. Will try the syrup. My lemon basil reseeds itself quite well and l rarely have to plant. They come up on their own. Thanks again!
