Basil Is an Herb for All Seasons
The use of exotic herbs in everyday cooking has become the norm rather than the exception. One reason for this is the discovery of the therapeutic value of herbs. Basil is one such herb and is characterized by its minty flavor. This aromatic herb is especially popular with chefs. So easy is it to grow that cooks would rather have fresh basil and grow it in their herb garden. The added fact that it doesn’t cost a great deal has ensured its popularity.
