    Wonderful* No more paying a fortune for gourmet basil oil. Just make this, get a baguette, and dip yourself into Basil Bliss. Try this recipe, and you will make it forever!!

    Am watching Martha Stewart show (7-26-12) where a French chef blanches the basil leaves briefly, shocks them in ice water, pat dry, before adding to the blender. She used only 1/2 cup olive oil to 1 1-2 cups fresh basil. She made Tartines (open faced sandwiches) with 1 Tablespoon basil oil in 1 cup ricotta with some chopped fresh dill, chopped radish, cherry vinegar. She used this as a spread for toasted slices of peasant bread, added water cress, smoked salmon, asparagus, peas and fresh green fava beans, fleur de sel,, then drizzled more basil oil on top.
