FAQs About Basil

It takes some work, but if you want to preserve the bounty of basil plants, you can indeed resort to placing them in the freezer. One way to prepare basil for freezing is to blanch it in boiling salt water for 15 seconds and drain. Then place it in ice water to cool it down and put it in the blender with some olive oil. Pour the pureed basil and olive oil into ice cube trays and put them into the freezer. The resulting cubes will last about a year. These will make for great additions to pesto sauce. You can also simply freeze the basil.
