We got basil in the share for the first time this year, so I thought I would post this advice on storing basil from the vegetables page of the web site:

Very short term: put a handful of cut basil in a jar of water and keep it fresh inside the house; snip with a pair of clean scissors.

Long term: To freeze: strip the leaves (tops can be left on the smallest stems) and place into a container with just a little force from your hand.

(This advice comes from Todd Ewen at the Heritage Store on 314 Laskin Road, down at the beach.)

if you have any other advice about storing or using basil, please add your comments.
