Basil Turns Black in the Refrigerator

HA! I was so happy that I found a bouquet of fresh basil yesterday at the farm. I brought it home, stuck it in a glass of water in the refrigerator, only to find it turning icky black today when I wanted to use it to make fresh pesto.

Come to find out, you aren’t supposed to put fresh basil in the fridge! oh well! live an’ learn. I won’t do that again.

I did salvage a good portion of it and made my first homemade pesto sauce.
