Go out and gather all your basil. Pull off any flowering parts and seeds and stick them into the ground, they will grown new plants.
Wash your basil throughly 2 or 3 times. Then use your wonderful salad spinner to remove the water
Wash, rinse and spin!
Chop basil and add just enough olive oil to cover the leaves. I used my food processor and pulsed it until desired size. Now I am going to put the basil into ice cube trays to freeze.
After they are frozen, pop them out and put into a freezer bag. Now you will have fresh basil to add to your sauces and soups this winter.
I wish you could smell how fresh this is when I opened up this bag to photograph the frozen cubes. It smells just like it did when I chopped them up the other day. Can't wait to use them.
