Lightly Dried Basil
Gourmet Garden Lightly Dried Basil is simply a large bunch of fresh basil, that has been lightly dried (just enough) to last for 4 weeks once opened. Because it is only lightly dried it refreshes in cooking, giving you the closest flavor, appearance and aroma to that of fresh herbs…without the wilt guilt.
Our sweet, Genovese basil plants begin life in Biloela, central Queensland where they are organically grown and then 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, roughly chopped and lightly dried before being packed into handy click ‘n stack bowls. Organic with just 4 simple ingredients, what could be better.
Basil is best added at the end of your cooking and pairs perfectly with beef, bell peppers, chicken, chili pepper, eggs, garlic, green leaf salads, olive oil, onions, oregano, pasta, thyme, tomatoes & zucchini.
In cooking use about 1 Tbsp of Lightly Dried basil to replace 2 Tbsp of fresh basil or sprinkle according to your taste!
There is literally no waste with Lightly Dried products since you can recycle or reuse the bowls. Simply pull off the shrink wrap and use them for any sort of knick knacks.
