    Default Lettuce Leaf Basil

    Last season I mentioned that I grew Lettuce Leaf Basil and some of you were
    interested. I've posted a photo so that you can see how large an average
    leaf is. I know some of you use basil in your sandwiches -- one of these
    leaves should do the job of covering the bread.

    Holy cow! That's basil on steroids. How does it taste?

    --
    I love cooking with wine.
    Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    Does it have a Latin name ?

    I think it is a little sweeter. Certainly very pleasant to taste and very
    fragrant.

    I'm growing some regular old basil, and the other day I picked a fresh
    red tomato, a couple of the tops of my basil plants, cubed up the
    tomato, kinds rough minced the basil plant tops, sliced a fresh
    mushroom thinly, sliced up couple of black olives, and "peeler" sliced
    up a carrot, put a little freshly ground black pepper and just a touch
    of some creamy Italian dressing on, tossed and called it salad! YUM!!

    Meant to take a pic of it, but the batteries in my camera were on
    charge and I ate it too fast! ;-)
