Taste and Aroma

Dried basil has a sweet-spicy aroma and it will give your dishes a light peppery taste.

Quick Kitchen Tips

Storage:

  • Store basil in a cool, dark place. Buy the amount that you think you will be able to use within six months.

Portioning:

  • 1 tablespoon dried basil = 3 tablespoons of fresh basil.

How to use when cooking:

  • You can add dried basil during cooking to really add flavor to your dish. The aroma will not be lost, but taken on. Fresh basil, on the other hand, is more suitable to garnish and decorate dishes.
