I used a large amount of basil smoke drying toamtoes which turned out great. I can't help but believe that throwing a handful of basil stems in while something was smokeing would turn out good. try it and let us know.

I have my eyes and ears wide open for this one. I too have several basil plants on the porch railing.

Make basil infused olive oil! Pour a bottle of EVOO into a pot, toss in a bunch of basil stems, get the oil warm.... not hot, but good and warm. Turn off the heat and let it sit for at least 12 hrs., filter it through some cheesecloth and put it back in your bottle. It will have a nice light basil flavor that is great to cook with!
