Secrets of Success

Fresh Basil



I love using fresh basil. Tried to grow it from seed...had no luck. When I buy it from the store I usually end up throwing out half the package. I hate waste!!
When I bought fresh basil this time I noticed that it looked like it was cuttings from a plant. I got out a couple of little vases and put the basil cutting in water. In a few days they sprouted roots!! In to a pot they will go!

More Information:

I am going to try this with other herb cutting I find at the grocery store. Good luck with your own herbs and happy, healthy cooking! emoticon
