½ Cup of Holy basil leaves

The preserve of Holy Basil
You must be Holy basil leaves and oil.
Extract from the leaves and stems of the reverse auction. Rinse thoroughly and dry them quickly they Flash. Do you have a salad spinner, this would be an excellent way to dry them.
Once they are completely dry, heat a pan over medium-high heat. Slightly oil the pan and throw in the Holy basil leaves.
Flash fry the browsing quickly throwing them around so that the leaves are covered with the oil. The heat and the oil will cause the leaves to wilt a bit, this is perfectly in order. Since the leaves are light and tender must not last very long, less than a minute. If you have a large amount of money to maintain, I suggest you flash fry them in batches over crowding.
Then transfer them to a dish and allow to cool. Once you can cool them up bag in small batches (servings) and save it in the freezer.
