What are the quick ways to store basil?
It's going down to -1 C tonight, so I finally brought my herbs in.
The basil plant is four feet tall and has a lot of leaves. I want to trim it, a lot. What's the quickest way to deal with a lot of basil leaves? Yeah, I will be making pesto, but not that much pesto in one go. I seem to remember someone saying to chop the basil and put it in ice cube trays with EVO. Does that sound reasonable? Are there other steps? Any tips or hints? Any other ways to keep it "almost fresh"?
May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live.
