    LonghornMama's Note:

    This is a wonderful way to use the fresh basil from your garden. I've been meaning to make this forever and am so glad I finally did. Delicious, easy, unusual and a beautiful green color. Would make an excellent gift for the holidays. Wonderful as an appetizer with cream cheese and crackers. I found this in Taste of Home by Sue Gronholz, who also suggests combining a jar with one cup of barbecue sauce and simmering mini meatballs or cocktail wieners in the mixture. This recipe assumes knowledge of hot water bath canning. Detailed directions can be found in the Canning Forum.
