Sweet Basil leaves compliment tomatoes and are added to many Italian dishes.

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.
