cold damage on basil plants

cold damage on basil plants
Posted by Tamara from md on 2009-10-23 10:01:00

My big beautiful basil bush has developed brown spots on it after a cold (no frost) night. I know that basil is ruined if it gets left out in the frost, but is this brown spotted basil still ok to use in making pesto? Is it safe? will it just be more strongly flavored?
Thanks for the help.
