Freeze Friday: Boozey Basil Blueberry Pops
Freeze Friday is here at last! The coolness has hit the air and this summer saviour is feeling the fall blues creeping in. Time for all the wonderful local farmers and orchards to begin their harvest! This weekend treat I dug in to my own garden and used up all of my over grown basil!
