Great all-year round herb for flavouring stews and meat dishes. We supply whole freshly cut sticks with leaves on. Keep the stick in water for as long as the leaves remain green, and pick as required. When it starts losing condition, allow to dry and then store the leaves in an airtight jar. Excellent for flavouring meats, vegetable dishes and pickles. The sticks are useful for cutting shorter and making kebab sticks, which lend a lovely flavour to your kebab. If you keep your sticks long, it is also useful for toasting marshmallows over the coals. If the stick has dried out, soak in water for an hour or more before using to prevent your food going up in flame over the coals.
Pairs incomparably with tomato in salads and sandwiches, great for garnishing and indispensible as the main ingredient of a basil pesto with your favourite pasta dish. Large torn leaves in melted cheese is a hit whether on pizza, on burgers, there is almost no holding back! Rich in anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.

Basil can also be used in the treatment of fever and other flu symptoms. Chewing fresh basil leaves offer some relief but to cure a rampant fever try consuming leaves made more tender by blanching in boiling water. Also, basil leaves boiled with powdered or crushed cardomom in a cup of water consumed three times daily, may provide real relief from a severe fever. If you feel colds and flu coming on, try adding lots of fresh basil to your morning smoothie.
