Basil is part of the mint family, and is typically used as a herb in Italian cooking. Basil can also be used in aromatherapy and alternative medicine to treat indigestion and muscle aches as well as snake bites
Basil has a distinctive and fragrant flavour. It can be processed with pine nuts, garlic cloves, shredded parmesan and olive oil for a versatile pesto used as a simple dip or as pasta sauce. Basil is also an excellent addition to tomato-based sauces to balance out the sweetness in a spaghetti or pizza dish. If you're feeling adventurous, you can also add some basil to a mug of hot green tea and a dash of honey as a quick pick-me-up
