This delicious basil concoction is a great way to use up any excess basil you have in the garden which will last in the fridge for up to 5 days - or you could freeze it into ice cubes so you have it all year round. It’s a perfect addition stirred through pasta, in zoodles, as an accompaniment for steak, fish or chicken or as an extra spread in a sandwich to give it that extra zizz! The basil could be swapped out for other seasonal herbs too.
