"This butter is wonderful on corn on the cob and French bread. I make this all summer long, while my basil is growing in the garden."

I love this! I like to use a small cookie scoop or melon baller and freeze them on a cookie sheet. Then I put them into a zip lock bag and store in the freezer. You can take out 1 or 2 as needed. Tastes great on vegetables, in pasta sauce, spread on corn or bread. Yummy!
I liked this but thought the lemon juice was just a bit overpowering. I will probably make it again but cut the lemon juice in half. And yes! It is good on corn on the cob!
I left out the sugar and salt and it is SO good! This keeps really well and for quite a while in the refrigerator. It's good on fresh bread, toast, baked potatoes, steamed veggies and eggs.
Like other reviewers I used a little less lemon juice, and I left out the salt and sugar. I just had to add a good AllRecipes crossover: I made the Basic Crepes on this site with two tablespoons melted basil butter. Then I got to eat very, very yummy mushroom and bacon stuffed herb crepes. I win!
I made this for a dinner party and everyone loved it. My husband ate it like ice cream!I used a cookie scoop to make individual pats that are the perfect size for a single serving.
Love it!!! its so versatile I use it on top of veggies, corn on the hob, chicken, beef steaks, pasta, etc.
Easy to make and easy to storage.
I used lime juice instead of lemon juice. Next time I'd leave out the sugar and salt, as it tastes a bit salty. I'll just tell everyone not to salt their corn until they taste it! Definitely will make again with the slight changes.
Fantastic recipe!! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! Just did my taste test, and OMG this will be perfect on my corn side dish for hubby on Valentine's Day. Love Allrecipes.com. Traci-VT
