Description & Use: Sweet basil is the variety that is dried for culinary use. Bush basil (O. minimum) has smaller leaves than sweet basil and is not generally dried. Sweet basil is a lush annual herb with a distinct clove and anise-like refreshing flavour. Dried basil leaves, although lacking the fresh top-notes of fresh basil, have a more pungent taste and one that is ideal for long, slow-cooked dishes such as soups, stews, casseroles and spaghetti bolognese.
