My basil kept growing and growing... It was getting too big in the basket
to support itself and was continually droopy
no matter how much I fed and watered it.
I've put it in the freezer as I've found this is the best way to keep it's lovely green colour.
HERE IS THE RECIPE
2 packed cups basil leaves
2-4 large cloves of garlic, peeled
3/4 - 1 cup good quality olive oil
1/4 - 1/2 cup toasted pinenuts or walnuts
Puree until a smooth paste.
I put the nuts in last so they are a little chunky.
Store in fridge or freezer in small containers.
Ice block cubes is ideal.
