Freezing Basil

So here is my first installment of my freezer series

Here is my basil plant.  It is sitting right on my kitchen window.  I picked off some of the larger leaves.

Stack the leaves so you can cut them into strips (Technically called chiffonade :)
Then put the strips into a freezer container to use later in soups, or my favorite, on top of pizza right after you pull it out of the oven.
Chance are you can get bunches of basil from your farmers market when in season.  Then just freeze and you can use them throughout the winter.  Mine lasted in these containers all winter.
