Q & A: What do I do with the ton of Basil (cilantro) I got at the market

My brother called the other night and asked what he should do with the massive amount of basil that he got from his CSA. I also, got a similar question from our neighbor, she wanted to use fresh cilantro but never finishes it before it goes bad.

The easy answer is puree it with oil and freeze it.

Place the herb in the blender with a little oil and puree. Add enough oil to make a paste that is not too oily. This can be stored in the refrigerator in a squeeze bottle or frozen in an ice cube tray.

Then when you want a splash of fresh herbs, drop in a cube.
