Beside above, what should I use basil for? The most common use of basil is for cooking, such as in tomato sauce, pesto, or vinegars. But it also can be sprinkled over salads and sliced tomatoes, either whole or chopped. Actually, don't chop the leaves, but tear them instead for the most flavor.
Also asked, what can I do with too much fresh basil?
Even when you buy fresh basil there is too much of it. I pinch off all the leaves and put them in a sealed plastic container in the freezer. When I make a sauce from tomatoes I take a handful of frozen basil leaves and quickly crush them. They shatter into small pieces which I drop in my sauce.
Can I freeze basil leaves whole?
How to Freeze Basil: To preserve some of the appealing green color when freezing whole leaves, steam them, pat dry and freeze in a single layer on a baking sheet. Once frozen, the leaves can be transferred to a freezer bag (get as much air out of the bag as possible) and stored for about 6 months.
