    JenSmith's Note:

    This stuff is great for just about anything! For a fancy presentation, use an ice cream scoop or melon baller to form the butter into balls. You can make plenty of this when basil is in season and store it for later use in the freezer. If you don't have a food processor, use your blender. Cook time is freeze time.

      Fabulous easy recipe. I put this in decorative jars and gave it away over Christmas. I have had nothing but good feedback. Yummy in mashed potatoes. Thanks.

      This was simple and adds great flavor to your foods. So far I have sautéed some large some large shrimp in the butter and server it as a side dish. It also keeps well in the freezer. Thanks!
