Our premium California basil is very clean with an excellent flavor and color, and is among the more costly "coarse broken leaf" variety. Basil is the top selling herb in the US, and makes an unbeatable trio when combined with garlic and tomato. When it comes to using basil for pesto, most people cannot distinguish between this dried basil and the fresh leaf. The greatest perk of using this dried basil is that it will last for many months when stored in a cool, dry cabinet. Ingredients: Basil.
