Universally loved for its aromatic and sweet flavour, basil is a favourite herb in cuisines around the world. Its leaves lend a fragrant and sweetly savoury touch to numerous plant-based dishes, securing its place as a staple in a myriad of culinary creations.
Basil is renowned for its warm and subtly peppery taste profile. It presents a somewhat sweet flavour with a hint of anise - a pleasant contrast to many other herbs. Similar to many leafy greens and herbs, basil leaves can lose their flavour when exposed to heat, so it's best to add them to your dishes just before serving. Additionally, the vibrancy of basil's flavour decreases over time once harvested or stored, amplifying the appeal of the Hydro-Herb kit even more. With this kit in your kitchen, you can savour fresh, richly flavoured basil all year round, right from your own countertop.
