Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense, you're just not keeping up
Warning: not a foodie or a botanist.
And then there was a basil tasting.


Straight-up sweet-basil is still a go-to for eating fresh on cream-cheese toast. The african blue and spicy globe are also interesting; mammoth is all right, but "the one with the pale-yellow edges which I forget what the name of it was" (I want to say limoncello but I think that's an aperitif or something) doesn't have much character to speak of. And purple ruffled has a strong anise-y taste which is maybe a little much for this application, because I'm still burping it up six hours later. But all in all, it seems like a good use of the Alleged Garden. Now if only I could figure out what to do with all that mint...

Found this in an old Martha Stewart magazine. Take mint leaves and dip them in chocolate. Haven't tried it yet, but sounds like a good idea. Also, mint juleps.
