BASIL

BASIL

Basilico
Substitutions: Preserved basil, dried basil

An annual herb, with a spicy aroma, sweet basil plays a grand role in Ligurian cooking and is the founding stone, so to speak, of pesto. Used in salads and sauces, in minestrone and vegetable soups. It really must be used fresh, as dry basil has practically no flavor. However, it can be stored by layering in a jar with olive oil.
