How to Make Basil Cubes


  1. Gather a huge bunch of fresh Basil.

    Process in a blender, trickling in extra virgin olive oil while blending. Blend until you have a pourable consistency
  2. Pour into ice cube trays and freeze immediately.

    Once the cubes are frozen remove them from the trays and store in the freezer in a bag. Pull them out one at a time whenever you need them.
  3. Pull these out during the winter to whip up pesto or just to add to soups
