Basil Stir-In Paste
Gourmet Garden Basil Cold Blended Paste is made with organic basil, grown by Aussie farmers on broad-acre farms in Biloela Queensland, where with warm subtropical climate and rich soil delivers the perfect conditions for flavoursome, aromatic herbs.
The basil is harvested in the early morning when their essential oils (that's the flavour, colour and aroma) are at their peak and then transported within 18 hours of harvest to our Palmwoods factory where they are washed, chopped and cold blended for fresher flavour that lasts for 4 weeks.
Basil is best added at the end of your cooking and is ideal in Italian dishes: pesto, pasta, pizza, creamy sauces, dressings, soups and frittatas. In cooking use 1 tbsp of stir-in paste to replace 1 tbsp of fresh basil or add according to your taste.
Find Basil Cold Blended Paste in handy tubes located in the fresh produce section of Coles, Woolworths and selected independent supermarkets.
