Basil

Origin: Egypt

Dried basil leaves are useful for slow-cooked dishes or sauces. Once the herb is dried, it lacks the beautiful heady scent and clove-like flavour of the fresh leaf but adds a deep and pungent flavour. Not suitable for salads or any dish where little or no cooking is involved, the flavour of dried basil is really good in a slow-cooked soup, stew or sauce.

Uses:
Add a pinch to tomato sauces, stews, braised meats or soups.
