Answer by GracieM
Wrap them in a wet paper towel, and store in the frig. Or you can leave them out to dry completely, then store in a covered plastic container.

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Programme (What’s this?)

    First of all I have to start of by saying that I have nothing to compare my thoughts with for this item. It’s the first food processor I’ve ever owned. I have always questioned the expense and whether it would be money well spent. I can tell you now that they are worth every penny. There’s so much more I can cook and create now, my simple electric whisk and hand masher have been relegated to the back of the drawer. When it arrived the size of the box was worrying. I only have a tiny kitchen and i thought it was going to take up too much space but it really doesn’t. It’s quite neat and has its own storage drawer too.it’s simple to use – although does create a fair amount of washing-up! I won’t be using it on a daily basis but it will come in handy on many occasions.

    I bought this because having previously owned a food processor (a while back) you lose an entire cupboard to one, so this being compact made it more kitchen friendly. Performs as you’d expect, speed 1+2, with the option to pulse, with normal processor parts and drink/blender style attachments.

    1. its compact, fits into my cupboard without taking up all the space.
    2. Comes with *lots* of accessories, with no where to store them – (annoyance no.1) how difficult would it have been to provide a small box?
    3. Has a handy disc drawer (cutter/grater), but this only holds 1 specific plastic disk and 2 metal ones – but the unit comes with 3 metal ones (why not make it a bit bigger?)

    Oddities;

    1. On the grater blade, there’s slight issue, the metal disks are a good (5mm?) narrower than the width of the processor, such that if you grate onion or potato you’ll end up with a large chunk which manages to fail to grate and spins around the top, only to slowly move through the gap and into the main section with the grated food.

    2. is quite tricky to get it to lock in place and to mount the plates etc – might be the same with all machines though.

    So all in all, its fine, nothing impressive, but allow for all the accessories needed if you’re short on space.

    I’ve used the processor for around 3 weeks now and I am very satisfied with it. The base of the machine has good build quality. The only problem I can identify it the quality of the bowl (reason I’m giving 4 stars), the plastic is very thin in certain areas and I had a small part from the base of the bowl break the very first time I used it (so be careful especially when fitting the bowl to the base)! Fortunately this piece of plastic was not essential for the operation of the mixer. So far I’ve sliced vegetables, chopped nuts, beaten whip cream and made cakes and soups with good results, the motor is powerful and not very loud considering it’s 1000W!. Like all food processors it comes with lot of accessories so you will need storage space and the usual drawback of having to wash the various parts after use. Also the power cord is quite short so make sure you have an electric plug nearby. If you are looking for an inexpensive food processor that does everything, go for it!

  4. Basil can be used in cooking – generally added at the end to keep its fresh taste and color. Basil can also be used fresh in salads, on sandwiches or even as a wrap, for instance around cheese cubes. Spaghetti sauce is my favorite, but here are some recipes that might become yours;
    Basil Puree: Process 4 cups loosely packed basil leaves and 1 cup olive oil or 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce in a food processor until basil is finely chopped. Spoon mixture into ice-cube trays, and freeze. Store frozen cubes in freezer bags up to 6 months. Makes about 1 cup or 8 (2-tablespoon) cubes.

    Use anywhere you need a burst of fresh basil flavor: in soups, sauces, or salad dressings. Thaw and add to marinades, or drizzle over grilled meats and vegetables.

    Basil Pesto: Process 4 cups loosely packed basil leaves, 6 garlic cloves, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1 cup each of shredded Parmesan cheese, toasted pine nuts, and olive oil in a food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides. Spoon mixture into ice-cube trays, and freeze. Store cubes in freezer bags up to 6 months. Makes 2 cups or 16 (2-tablespoon) cubes.

    Pesto is great to have on hand for last minute hors d’oeuvres. It can stand alone as a dip and also works as a spread for pizzas and sandwiches.

    Basil-Garlic Butter: Process 1 cup softened butter and 2 garlic cloves in a food processor until smooth. Add 1/2 cup firmly packed basil leaves, and pulse 3 to 4 times or until basil is finely chopped. Store in the refrigerator up to 1 week, or freeze in airtight containers up to 4 months. Makes 1 cup. If desired, shape butter into a log; wrap in wax paper, and chill. When firm, slice into smaller rounds, and freeze.

    Serve with hot crusty French bread or baked potatoes. Toss with hot, cooked pasta and Parmesan cheese or steamed vegetables. Try it on a grilled cheese with mozzarella, sliced tomatoes, and crumbled bacon.

    Pesto-Goat Cheese Spread: Process 1 (11-ounce) log goat cheese, 1 (8-ounce) package softened cream cheese, 2 cups loosely packed basil leaves, 1/2 cup toasted pine nuts, 3 garlic cloves, and 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar in a food processor until smooth. Chill 2 hours before serving. Makes 3 cups. Store in refrigerator up to 1 week, or freeze in airtight containers up to 4 months. Serve with toasted pita chips or sliced baguettes.

    Shape cheese mixture into logs, and wrap in wax paper; slice chilled logs into 1/2-inch rounds. Dip rounds in lightly beaten egg; dredge in Italian breadcrumbs. Pan-fry over medium-high heat in a little butter 1 minute on each side or until golden, and serve warm over a crisp, green salad.

    Lemon-Basil Mayonnaise: Process 2 cups mayonnaise and 1 garlic clove in a food processor until smooth. Add 1/2 cup firmly packed basil leaves and 1 tablespoon grated lemon rind; pulse 3 to 4 times or until basil is finely chopped. Store in refrigerator up to 1 week. Makes 2 cups.

    Even though this won’t freeze, it’s unbelievably delicious with a bowl of grape tomatoes or on a turkey sandwich. Use it in place of plain mayonnaise in deviled eggs or main dish salads; it’s also great with chicken, shrimp, or tuna. Try this flavorful mayonnaise instead of tartar sauce the next time you serve your favorite fish.

    sorry for over-load…but hope it helps. :)

  5. Once they are completely dry, I use a piece of Press n Seal laid out on counter, and then lay each leaf out separately, with a space in between each leaf. It’s best to lay them out in grid form. Then I take another piece and place on top and press sheets together around each sheet. Then just fold sheet to fit in small ziplock bag. You can store in frig or in freezer. When needed, take sheet and cut what you need, restore the rest. Or let them completely dry out and crush up and place in spice jar, whichever is your preference, fresh or dried. Hope this helps and works for you, and enjoy cooking with your basil!!

  6. confetti shred (wrap leaves tightly & cut into thin strips) mix w/tomatoes & mozz cheese

    wrap in damp paper towel, put in ziplock in veggie drawer

    hang up to dry completely

    or

    deep fry for an awesome topping to pizza or spaghetti

  7. TOTAL dry. Label a zip lock back & toss it with your spices. Whenever you need basil, then crush leaves to put into your measuring spoon. I have bags with basil, sage, rosemary, thyme & mint leaves. They keep well in cabinet in a ziplock – -but only if thoroughly dry and for years same as those in tins. I even do that with catnip for my cat’s toy.
