#51 The Case of Green Basil

Black Currant Bay herb farmer/market vendor Al Roycroft looks like a former body builder but probably built his impressive frame working his farm. He wears a white cowboy hat every time I see him, and this last time as he passed me a beautiful bunch of basil, he drawled out, "Ma'am, most cut herbs you keep in plastic in the fridge. Basil is the only herb you store stems down in a glass of water at room temperature—just like a bouquet."

Thanks Al!
