One of the greatest culinary herbs available, Basil can be found in many popular Asian and Mediterranean dishes. While sweet basil is most common, flavors like lemon, cinnamon, and even chocolate basil are available as well. This plant has bright green and tender leaves with small white flowers. The flavor of this herb is quite strong, slightly peppery with hints of clove. Pairs beautifully with tomatoes and garlic. When purchasing basil, look out for fresh green leaves and try to avoid copper colored leaves or flower buds. In this post we’ll be making a traditional green pesto, which is an easy way to enjoy this versatile herb as a condiment.
