try this herb rub (can keep for ages) with basil instead of sage/rosemary http://www.thewednesdaychef...

You can have fresh tasting basil all year long by doing this:

Here's a great chicken dish that uses tomatoes, garlic and a big hank of fresh basil. I've never used the stems like this but the aroma and flavor is so intense!

The obvious idea is to make lots of pesto and freeze it. But other ideas...basil sorbet? Mojito with basil in place of mint?

I could eat corn, tomato, avocado, basil and lemon salad every single day of the summer.
I also use it atop grilled salmon, mixed in with lamb meatballs or kebab, in vinaigrette dressing, tossed in with a green salad, you name it! I make a basil peach jam and/or butter every year. My neighbors don't grow any so I also share with them. No such thing as too much basil!!

Cucumber-basil gin gimlets are good if you have any left!

Also, the "Granny Smith, Ginger, and Basil Granita" on Epicurious is delicious. I wish I had a garden with too much basil in it...

I love to use basil in salads along with lettuce and mint.

Jamie Oliver has a good minestrone recipe that calls for basil stems as well as basil. And there's always Thai salads. They ask for Thai basil, but regular can be substituted. I also recently tossed basil with avocado, quinoa and roasted veg.
