What Is Basil?

Basil (also known as great basil or Saint-Joseph's-wort), is part of the mint family and originated in Egypt over 4,000 years ago.

Basil was considered a sacred herb in its native India and was often planted in temples as a protector.

This dry basil has a subtle peppery flavour but, when it's cooked, it becomes much sweeter. It makes an excellent addition to sauces and stews – basically anything that has a longer cooking time to bring out its sweetness.

Cooking With Dry Basil

To use in place of fresh basil, basically use 1/3 of the fresh basil amount. So, 1 tablespoon of fresh chopped basil equals 1 teaspoon dried.
