Tasting Notes

The dark greeny brown chopped leaves give a sweet and slightly spicy aroma, and the flavour is characteristic of anise.

Basil is a versatile culinary herb as it beautifully flavours vegetables, meat and fish. When Basil in unavailable, mint could be used to create a similar taste. Basil mixes especially well with dishes that have a tomato base and is often used in Italian cooking, particularly pasta sauces. It is also great for use in salad dressings and marinades for meat. To try something different, why not sprinkle over strawberries and raspberries to enhance their flavour.
