Basil - 4 oz Bag
Basil is one of the most widely used culinary herbs in the world. It has highly aromatic qualities and flavor profiles; the wide range of distinctive fragrances within its chemical makeup emit notes of citrus, clove, anise and cinnamon, all providing a sensory memory that sets basil apart from other herbs.
Essential in Italian cooking, use basil to create an amazing, savory pesto or to accent pasta dishes, pizza and bruschetta.
Basil boasts a high level of vitamin K, only 2 tablespoons of basil fulfills 20% of the recommended daily intake. Basil also has a moderate amount of beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant which converts to vitamin A when digested. Basil has been used in traditional Hindu medicine to treat inflammatory diseases, including arthritis.

We strive to choose only organically grown or certified organic veggies and fruits from as close to home as possible. However, sometimes we are unable to find a local AND organic option, and in that event we may choose to offer a pesiticide-free local product from a farmer that uses integrated pest management on their crops. We target farms that put an emphasis on health, safety and the fair treatment of their employees, their animals and their farm. We have high standards, and so do our farms.
