Sweet Basil

Sweet Basil (C) is an annual herb with large aromatic green leaves and white flowers. Use fresh leaves to make pesto. Basil is great paired with any tomato dish, chopped fine in salads or in salad dressing. To preserve basil’s fresh flavour, blend with some olive oil and freeze in ice cube trays. Pop them out of the ice cube trays once frozen and store in a bag in the freezer.
