This stuff is great for just about anything!
I use it to flavor chicken, fish, or vegetables, or as a spread for bread. Any other use you can think of is probably all right too.
You can make plenty of this when basil is in season and store it in the freezer. Makes about 4 dozen butter balls

1 1/2 cups loosely packed fresh basil leaves
3/4 lb salted butter or unsalted butter, softened (NO SUBSTITUTES!)
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons white pepper

In a food processor, chop the basil. Add butter, lemon juice and pepper; blend until smooth.
Drop by half-tablespoons onto a cookie sheet; freeze. To make it fancy for company I use a small ice cream scoop or melon baller to form the butter into balls.

Remove from cookie sheet and store in freezer bags.
