Basil Lemon is great for drying and used fresh for cooking. It is an annual with a lemony scent and flavor. It grows 24" tall with pale green, fairly broad leaves and spikes of white flowers in the summer. It is an excellent container plant. Pinch to promote bushy growth.
You can pick leaves to use in cooking as needed. Basil lemon can be dried or frozen for later use. It is best if stored in vinegar or oil. Harvest sprigs just before the flowers open for the most intense flavor. Strip the leaves and either chop or leave whole. To freeze, fill each cell of an ice cube tray 3/4 full with the basil, then add hot water to cover (hot water helps the leaves retain their color). Remove frozen cubes from trays and store in a freezer bag until ready to add to recipe later.

In light of everything going on in the world we have implemented some changes to ensure your safety. Our hours will be looking a little different Monday through Friday; we will be having reserved hours for those who are members of the vulnerable population group. 8 am to 9 am will be the time frame set aside for your needs to shop. We are also taking steps to help provide a cleaner environment for you and your loved ones. We have scheduled an employee to come in each morning prior to us opening to clean the store. We also strongly encourage that when you're in the store please practice social distancing. You should be at least 6 ft from others. As of right now we are still not set up to provide services such as curbside assistance. We are trying to do what we can in light of everything going on in the world. We encourage you to practice the safety guidelines that have been ordered by our Governor and Health Department. We appreciate your continued support of our small businesses during these unforeseen difficult times.
