This Red Rubin Basil has a very similiar flavor to the regular Italian Sweet Basil we normally have, but adds some visual intensity to any dish you prepare it with.
Basil plays a role in many Mediterranean, and particularly Italian, cuisines. It forms the basis of pesto and adds a distinctive flavor to salads, pasta, pizza, and other dishes. Indonesian, Thai, and Vietnamese cuisines also feature this herb, and in the Caribbean it's a common addition to bush tea!
In the diet, basil can provide vitamins, minerals, and a range of antioxidants. Its essential roil may also have medicinal benefits.
