Basil Galore!

Standard


Ever have leftover basil that spoils quickly?? We’ve all been there where you use a few leaves for a pasta sauce and have an entire container left that goes bad before you have a chance to use it, right? But there’s a great way to save it and always have basil on hand! 

Simply tear all of the basil leaves off the stems and add them to a food processor. Pulse until the basil forms somewhat of a paste. Lastly, scoop the basil mixture into ice trays and freeze them in an airtight freezer bag for later use. I used this cute star shaped tray for fun. Each cube will have a lot of basil in it since it is so heavily concentrated. One cube probably equals about 6 leaves of basil–a little goes a long way. Use to flavor sauces, pestos, or whatever you like!
