Honeybees live in colonies with one queen, worker bees (females) collecting food for honey, and male drones. Honeybees are important pollinators for flowers, fruits, and vegetables. Honeybees are disappearing and are so important to try to keep around!
Our favorite way to preserve basil is to freeze it into oil cubes to pull out all winter long! We also occasionally dry the basil leaves, but dried basil doesn’t quite retain the flavor of fresh leaves.
