Basil Shopping Tip

Look for bright green leaves free of dark spots. The leaves should be dry and are best kept wrapped in a paper towel in a bag when storing in the refrigerator.

Basil Cooking Tip

When using basil in a hot recipe, add it only at the last minute. Otherwise you will lose the flavor and fragrance of the herb.
