What to do with extra basil

Lemonii | Aug 23, 2007 09:12 AM

So I have a bunch of basil and no food processor to make pesto. I've tried to do it in my mortar and pestle but it's not big enough to really grind and smash it up with pine nuts, etc. I've tried to make it with my blender but it just doesn't work. It only blends the bottom and the rest doesn't settle down and get mixed in.... I can keep pushing it down, but then it's hard to get it all out of the bottom of the blender. So yah, no pesto can be made as of now.

What else can I do with all this basil? I have about 2 or 3 cups (ish). I eat meat, but love vegetarian too.

BTW, I have loads of parsely too....
