No pictures for this food item because, frankly, it didn’t look that great. It tasted amazing though. Here’s the story:

I had the basil from my CSA that had gone slightly off in the refrigerator. It wasn’t bad, but it didn’t look great and I didn’t have any recipe that I could use it in right then. So I thought: people make kale chips, I wonder if that would work for basil… Pulled off the leaves, washed them up, tossed them in olive oil and sea salt. Then I laid them out on a cookie sheet and baked at 350 degrees for 5 minutes.

Oh man they were good. The house smelled of basil, and the chips were crisp and basil-y and amazing.

We have some left over mint in the fridge. I might do the same thing but with maple syrup instead of olive oil.

What other chips have people made?
