Basil Preservation

Last week I harvested Basil. We had it fresh, I made pesto, I made a basil simple syrup and I dried the rest. What is your favorite way to preserve basil?

Herbed Strawberry Banana Bowl

I have included fresh Thyme and Basil in this bowl. Thyme has properties that help you recover from viruses and Basil has an antioxidant (linalool) which is antiviral, antibacterial and pain reducing. A delicious recovery bowl for colds and flu.
