FROZEN BASIL CUBES
Several sprigs basil (I use Trader Joe's boxed organic basil)
Wash well and separate leaves from stem. Place leaves in a blender (I use the Blendtec Twister Jar) and pulse until smooth. Put teaspoons of blended basil in an ice cube tray and freeze. Pop out and use in sauces, soups or any recipes calling for basil.
