A recent post (I don' think I need to mention the one), got me to thinking....can you infuse water with basil and are there any health benefits to it?
Right now, I'm doing everything in the world I can think of to use my basil, which has turned into a HUGE crop this year. I'm making pesto, using it in recipes and putting it in the food processor with a little water and placing the mixture into ice cube trays to freeze, so fresh basil is around when I need it.
But I have to admit, I had never heard of infusing water with basil. Simple syrup, yes (used with lemonade, it's great).
Anyone done this water infused basil?
