Basil Salt

-Doesn't that sound wonderful? I actually love the taste of basil, and we use our basil pesto all the time on sandwiches and french bread, so I thought this recipe sounded like a natural.  Easy as can be, just 1/2 cup of fresh basil and 1/2 cup of salt.  I used course ground sea salt, but the recipe itself calls for Kosher salt. Difference? Not sure..I could look it up if I cared enough, but I had sea salt, so that's what I used.
 First grind with fresh basil and salt. I used my little food processor.
 After baking for 30 minutes on 225 degrees.  I used a coffee grinder for the second grind.
Ready to use!  I wonder if John would poke some holes in that lid for me....I'll ask.....
