This summer growing has been amazing in Oregon. Climate or me having a bit mire time to nurture. Either way I found myself with record crop of sweet basil. Keeping the blossoms pruned off – it has grown beautifully. Ive got several basil recipes to share. A sweet for savory basil jelly. Freezer basil pesto you make up in a blender and ice cube trays. And then a wonderful summer appetizer watermelon goatcheese basil bites. Yum. Summer goodness.

I was raised on a large farm in a small community of Long Shop, Virginia. Just a stones throw from Blacksburg, Va and a short drive to the WV boarder. I grew up appreciating Appalachia cooking with low budgets and home grown veggies. What honestly tastes better than a warm tomato out of the garden sliced fat with salt and pepper? Maybe a bowl of good brown pinto beans and cornbread. Or even better grilled trout fresh caught from the creek! My childhood was a dream... and what has made my passion for food- sharing good meals with good friends and loved ones. My food always has a story and always in sizes to share. Im a county girl with a lot of love to share. Girl raised in the South cooking- that's me! GRITCOOKING! I hope you enjoy and please, share and give feedback on what you like or wanting to know more on. Much LOVE always. View all posts by Gritcooking- A Southern Girls Taste
