Tuesday Tip : Gourmet Garden Basil

I love fresh herbs; I really do.
But, sometimes they are not in season or
I forgot to water them
or we just don't have enough in the garden right then.
Gourmet Garden to the rescue!

They can explain it better than I can: 
Our herbs are organically grown and are simply washed, chopped, blended
and packed into tubes to maintain all their fresh taste and nutrition.

 
My friend Ashley first told me about this wonder product when she made a yummy caprese salad with mozzarella, tomatoes and a few squeezes of the Gourmet Garden basil.  Mix in a bowl, and you are in heaven.  Oh my goodness, it was delicious!  And so easy.  I've made that several times since, and it always tastes wonderful.  It's so easy to add flavor to tomato soup, one of my favorites.  If I don't have fresh basil when I make Strawberry Basil Lemonade, I reach for my GG Basil in the fridge, and it tastes just like fresh basil without the chopping!  Thanks to Pinterest, I also spread it on two pieces of bread, add sliced tomatoes and mozzarella and grill for a caprese grilled cheese that is out of this world.  And easy (notice a theme here?).  There's so much you can do!

 The basil is always in the fridge, but I've also used the ginger, cilantro and garlic.  All were great!
