    1       bn           Basil, washed, stemmed
      3/4   c            Oil, olive
 
        Puree the basil with 1/2 cup of olive oil.  Cover
   with a bit of olive oil and refrigerate for up to two
   weeks if desired.  (The length of time the basil is in
   oil helps to diffuse the flavor into the oil. On the
   other hand, after two weeks, the fresh basil begins to
   lose its bouquet, and taste to natural spoilage.
   
        Discard after 6 weeks and start fresh.
