The best way to freeze basil is to put leaves in a food processor with a little water and blend to a corse paste. Spoon into ice cube trays and freeze. Place frozen cubes in a freezer bag and use when needed. The only problem is your freezer could smell like basil. Try double bagging or some other air tight container like a mason jar.
