Basil has an initial subtle peppery flavour. Once cooked the taste then evolves into a slightly sweet, aromatic flavour.
Our Basil infusion can be used in a variety of ways. We hope you enjoy!
- Enjoy as a delicious dipping oil mixed with balsamic vinegar
- Drizzle over fresh tomato and mozzarella
- Mix with a crisp, green salad
- Use as a base for Italian pasta sauces
Basil pairs exquisitely well with lemon, tomato and garlic. Sweet basil is an essential ingredient in Italian and Mediterranean cuisine. Delicious when added to pasta, pizza, creamy sauces, dressings, soups and salads. Adds depth of flavour to meats such as chicken and beef. It also pairs extremely well with other herbs such as chives, dill, oregano, rosemary, thyme.
You can even try mixing infusions together to create other interesting flavour combinations.
