Pesto. One of those things that just screams “Summer!!” It is exciting when my basil over-produces this time of year so I have an excuse make it, both for eating now and to go in the freezer when I need a dose of summer later in the year.
Simple syrup is something I usually keep on hand in my fridge. It’s easy to make – simple, really 😉 – and stores for quite some time. It never lasts long enough for me to determine just how long; however, it has kept for a least 2 weeks by my records.
