Basil Stir-In Paste
Gourmet Garden Basil Cold Blended Paste contains 3 bunches of organically grown sweet basil that keeps fresh for weeks.
Our Genovese basil plants begin life in the fertile Callide Valley in central Queensland and are harvested in the early morning when their essential oils are at their peak. From there they are transported within 18 hours of harvest to our Palmwoods facility where they are washed, chopped and blended with oils, salts and sugars before being packed into handy tubes.
Basil is best added at the end of your cooking.
Loves… Italian: pasta, pizza, mozzarella, pesto, poultry, watermelon & tomatoes

In cooking use 1 Tbsp. of Cold Blended Paste to replace 1 Tbsp. of fresh basil or add according to your taste.
