Do you enjoy preparing dishes that contain fresh basil? Put a bunch of fresh basil in a glass. Cover the stems with water. Keep it on the kitchen counter and it should stay fresh. You can even grow new basil plants if you feel like changing the water every day or so. The stems will sprout roots; that’s the wonder of plant life. If you keep the basil trimmed regularly, this will promote growth and allow a decent supply of basil on an ongoing basis.
