I have just a few leaves of basil left from the last 4 oz batch of O organics and it is going bad soon. I was just thinking you might be able to just put it in a vessel of olive oil so it did not go to waste. A little basil flavor would not hurt the oil and you could put it alot of dishes instead of letting it go to waste. And while we are at it: is there any use for basil stems, I hate to see them go to waste. I am not a real penny pincher I just hate waste. I used to try and put carrot pulp from a juicer in bread. Now that's pushing it!! The price dif on this basil at the grocery is amazing 2.50 for .66 oz and only 3.50 for 4 oz. I cant wait for my homegrown (basil) to come of age.
