    Hi Cathy!

    Another great way to use basil up is to make chilli basil chicken stirfry! This is the recipe I use from SBS food safari:
    Also, don’t forget, it’s winter soon (well, in Aust anyway!), and a huge batch of slow cooked spag bol with delicious fresh basil can be frozen in single serves, or even better still – in a handy lasagne! :)
