Apple Lime Juice with Basil
Basil. When I think about the little things in life that make me happy, the scent of basil is definitely one of those things. Don’t think I can ever get enough of it. A garden full of basil would be lovely. With basil that’s alive and kickin’… Sounds like a dream right. I mean.. how? It’s always so challenging to keep basil strong. My sister recently told me thé trick.
All I knew was watering from the bottom of the pot, would help. Just a little every time. Franca told me that the plastic pots from basil are often to small. So get rid of it and replace it for a larger pot. I actually did this and it made a change for sure (I also water it with a spray). My basil survived for months and became stronger and stronger. Till I made pesto… 😉
I bought a new plant for the apple lime juice with basil. The new challenge just started again! What do you do to keep your basil alive and kickin’?
- 2 apples
- 1/2 lime
- About 10 basil leaves
- Wash the fruits and basil.
- Cut the apples in pieces (don't juice the core if you want to use the pulp)
- Start juicing with apple, then basil, apple, basil, and so on.
- Squeeze the lime with a fork above the juice.
