    While dried basil is awesome....I find pesto to be a better use, it is pretty easy to find ample dried basil in the spice ailse. finding good pesto in much harder...at least in my area where herb gardens a rare.

    I have always grown chives, This year i grew alot of herbs in pots on the deck.I dried and put in jars (square Jars is my vote) with the shaker tops. I did however bring my rosemary in and put it in my kitchen window. I have used alot of it this winter.
