10 gallons of basil

So, in mid June, Ruth and I bought two small basil plants from a local nursery. Soon, the plants started to get big, so we split them into 4. Not long after that, the plants became a hedge of basil and overtook our back deck.

So today, we harvested the plants and filled a 13 gallon trash bag almost to the brim - about 38 liters of basil, all told.

So, I'm looking for suggestions, besides the obvious pesto and pasta. What should we do with it? If you're in Cambridge, MA, a perfectly good answer might be "give me some" :-) (/me looks in Luis', Krissa's and Bryan's direction).
