Basil

Egypt / Ocimum basilicum

Dried basil adds concentrated flavor to all manner of Mediterranean dishes- from marinara sauce to garlic soup. Our favorite variety is from Egypt, where they produce an intensely flavored leaf with hints of anise flavor and mild sweetness. It is best in dishes that will be heated to release the full flavor.

I like to brew up a cup of basil tea, either hot or iced with lemon.
