One of our favorite qualities of dried basil is that dried basil leaves have a stronger, more concentrated flavor than fresh leaves. The flavor profile changes: where fresh can taste like a mixture of anise, mint, pepper, and clove-dried basil, it tends to have a deeper taste, with fewer anise notes and hints of mint. There also tend to be differences in their uses: we like to use fresh basil in dishes that don’t require long cooking times, or as a garnish. We prefer to use dried basil in cooked dishes that require heat for a long period of time.
Evermill’s Basil is certainly sweet, and peppery and has the traditional hints of clove and anise licorice. We love to use our dried basil in tomato sauces, cold pasta salads, grilled fish, salad dressings, and roasted vegetables or chicken. You can’t go wrong adding it into marinades, stews, soups, and even making pesto out of it.
