Oh, I just love my basil! I have 3 healthy stalks in my garden. I use basil in almost everything. I just love the aroma. It's one of my fave herbs!

I read this somewhere that if you want to preserve basil for use during the winter, just puree the leaves in a food processor with olive oil. Freeze the puree in ice cube trays, and then store them. Such a brilliant idea since winter is fast approaching.
