Preserving Fresh Basil

What is the best way to preserve fresh basil?

I did try the French method of preserving basil in Kosher Salt. Results were astonishing as there was a basil oil residue on the leaves. The leaves were very pungent unlike the dried basil.

So. Does anyone have another method however bizarre?
