Cook ingredients that you are used to cooking by other techniques, such as fish, chicken, or hamburgers. In other words be comfortable with the ingredients you are using.

Kitchen Quick Tips - Preserving Basil

kitchen quick tips
While basil can be air dried it is too delicate to heat dry.  A better method of preserving basil is to make pesto then spoon into ice cube trays and freeze.  Once frozen, pop out the cubes and transfer to a freezer bag for use as needed.

Do you have a recipe for pesto? Not that I'd know what to do with that either.
I just grow the basil for the tomatoes...
