Basil cubes

This morning I cut back all my basil plants washed, dried it and stuck it in the food processer with some olive oil.. I then put it in ice cube trays, into the freezer until they are hard and then the cubes will go in zip loc bags in the freezer. The basil stays green and the cubes are perfect to toss in sauce or marinades, or even a couple kinds of soup I make. Its like having fresh basil all year ! I hope to do this a few more times before it frosts here.
 This was the basil I used for the cubes this morning..

Doughnuts from Grands Biscuits?! Wow... Never would have thought of that! Did you fry them or bake them? I am going to try making baked doughnuts. Finally got the pan for it!

Enjoy all that yummy basil!
Take care,

I make my basil the way you do. What are Grand biscuits? Is that a brand or recipe?
