Today they are finally done and here's the photos to prove it.
The cubes even smell like fresh basil, and they are all dark green and have that "frozen in time" look. Now I'm wanting cold weather, so I can get the soup pot out, and toss in a couple of these in for seasoning.
Meanwhile, three ice cube trays of basil cubes is just enough to fill a gallon size zip loc bag. Then they went right back into the freezer.
Also - damselindisdress posted a comment on the previous basil post -and asked about putting whole basil leaves in the freezer-by themselves -in a ziploc. I've never tried it, but I certainly will - as soon as my basil plants grown back a bit.
That led me to wondering what about using those snack size ziplocs, and putting whole leaves in them, and adding water -somewhat like herbal popsicles? I'll be trying that too.
