So, what is basilikum?

Basilikum, also known as basil, is a fragrant herb commonly used in Italian, Thai, and Mediterranean cuisine. Its bright green leaves have a slightly sweet, peppery flavor with hints of clove and anise. Basilikum is a versatile herb that pairs well with tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and olive oil in classic dishes like Caprese salad and margherita pizza. It is also a key ingredient in pesto sauce, which is made by blending basil, pine nuts, Parmesan cheese, and garlic. Aside from its culinary uses, basilikum has been traditionally used for its medicinal properties, including its ability to relieve stress and aid digestion.
