    You can freeze basil by packing it very tightly in a freezer bag. Push it into the bottom of the bag, roll it up tightly, secure with rubber bands and freeze. When you want to use it, just cut off what you need. It tastes like fresh – much better than dried basil.

    I have dried basil in bunches under a shade cloth tent to protect from dust and harsh sun, but it bleached somewhat anyway. I then put basil leaves on cookie sheets in the refrigerator at 40F and found that the leaves dried more quickly and maintained their dark green color. For some strange reason, purple basil doesn’t stay purple in the Mojave desert.
