New Take on Basil (Lime Basil Pesto)

I happened to buy some "lime basil" seeds this spring. I haven't had much luck with growing basil inside, so am always looking for ways to freeze the fresh herbs I can't grow inside. I used the lime basil, some peanuts and peanut oil, a little cilantro, ginger, and the juice of a half a lime and made this great "pesto" for the freezer. I plan on putting spoon fulls of it in coconut juice and chicken stock and making Thai green curry.

Isn't Lime Basil terrific? It's one of my "must haves" to grow, along with the regular Genovese & lemon types.
