Keeping basil fresh

Mad | Nov 24, 2005 10:37 PM

I know for most of you this is an out-of-season question but where I live - southern Baja - we are just now getting an abundance of basil. How can I best keep it fresh once it is picked? I have tried putting it in water which sometimes works and sometimes it wilts immediately. I have been told it doesn't like to be cold. I only need to keep it a couple of days - help!!
