Spin leaves dry in a salad spinner or dry well with paper towels. Place herbs in food processor with 1/3 cup olive oil for every 2 cups leaves, or 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick) per 2 to 4 tablespoons leaves. For butters, add grated citrus rind, ginger, or garlic for extra flavor. To make sure herb oils are adaptable to a wide variety of uses, don’t add cheese or nuts. Pulse processor, scraping down sides of bowl from time to time, until you get a chunky paste and all leaves are chopped. To package for freezing, put 1 cup herb oil or 1/2 cup herb butter in a 1-quart zip-top bag, then flatten and spread mixture to make a thin layer. Freeze flat. Best used within 6 months.
