Basil Cubes (to preserve fresh basil)

Thought I'd let you know this hint for basil. It won't taste like fresh, but if you use it in cooked recipes (like spaghetti sauce), it works. Finely chop the fresh basil and put in blender. Add just enough olive oil (doesn't take much) to make a paste and process on highest setting. Once done, spoon into an ice cube tray and freeze. Once frozen you can put the "cubes" in a plastic bag. When you are making your sauce in the winter, just add one ice cube for each tablespoon basil in any cooked recipe. Deb Allen
