So, what is basil?

Basil, also known as Ocimum basilicum, is a highly fragrant and flavorful herb commonly used in cooking. Its tender green leaves have a sweet, slightly peppery taste with a hint of clove and anise. Basil is rich in essential oils, vitamins, and minerals, making it not only a delicious ingredient but also a nutritious one. This herb is versatile and can be used fresh or dried in a wide range of dishes, from pasta sauces and pesto to salads and soups. Its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties also make it a popular ingredient in natural remedies and traditional medicine.
