Basil - Ground

This absolutely delicious and fragrant basil is harvested by hand and then left to dry in the sunny and warm Nile River Valley in Egypt.

This is a sweet basil, popular in Italian and Mediterranean cuisine; and also featured in Thai, Vietnamese, and Southeast Asian cuisines. Basil is featured in dishes like Italian pesto sauce and Thai spicy basil sauce. Sun dried basil leaves are often used in the off-season (November - June) when fresh basil is not readily available. Substitute 1 tsp of dried basil for 1 tbsp of chopped fresh basil.

A base of basil, garlic, and olive oil is the start for a large majority of Italian recipes. Pair Sweet Basil with cheese, chicken, eggplant, lamb, onions, olive oil, rabbit, sweet peppers, tomatoes, lemonade, cream sauces, and more. Basil is delicious in salads and appetizers as well: bruschetta on toast and an appetizer of mozzarella, tomato, basil, and balsamic vinaigrette on toast are two such dishes. This Italian basil for pesto and cream sauces can add sweet floral notes to any pasta dish.

Dried herbs can be stored for up to six months in a cool dry place.
