So, what is basilicum?

Basilicum, commonly known as basil, is a herb that is widely used in cooking due to its distinctive aroma and flavor. It belongs to the mint family and has a slightly sweet, peppery taste that is often described as anise-like. Basilicum leaves are bright green and have a delicate texture with a slightly glossy appearance. The herb is rich in essential oils and nutrients, including vitamins A, C, and K, iron, and calcium. Basilicum is a versatile ingredient that can be used fresh or dried in a variety of dishes, including salads, soups, sauces, and pestos. Its fresh, fragrant flavor makes it a popular addition to Mediterranean and Thai cuisine.
