Basil is a small herb that has many uses, from culinary to medicinal. A small basil plant produces a strong basil flavor without much competition. Our lime helps to soften the basil flavor and add a rich, sweet flavor to the dish.
As you may know from seeing the list of Basil recipes, basil is a relative of the verb basilos, meaning “to make a basil.” A basil is also a member of the mint family, which includes mints like minty and minty mild. Because basil tastes so good, it can be used to flavor beverages, soups, and other foods.
Basil is also used to make basil-flavored teas and teas, as well as flavored oils, and in cooking. In cooking, basil is used as an herb in sauces and in marinades. In marinades it is used as a substitute for anchovies or sardines. You can also add basil to salads, as basil is a source of iron.
The basil that you find in your grocery or deli is usually a variety of the species basil (or sometimes bergamot), which is an herb that grows in Mediterranean climates. The basil that you buy can be either the species or the variety. In general, the types of basil that you find are less bitter than the variety of basil.
Just for your convenience, we’ve grouped basil and lime together. The two grow similarly, though you’ll find that the varieties of basil are darker green while the varieties of lime are brighter green.
So the question we ask ourselves is…
What does a basil plant look like? Well, when you buy the new basil, the plant gets a few cuts, and the leaves are dried and stored in the garden. The plant makes a beautiful green aroma and looks so pretty it can be used as a garnish. As a garnish you can add it to any dish, bake it in a cake, or use it in a salad.
The lime, on the other hand, is a much more interesting vegetable. It’s the only one of the two that can be grown on a vegetable garden. It’s a beautiful plant and the variety is pretty darn rare. The variety is actually called “Golden Lime,” and the leaves are dark green, almost blackish green, and covered in lime-like hairs.
The basil is similar in appearance and taste to the lime, but it’s more robust in flavor. Because of its robust flavor, it can be used as a garnish or added to a dish, but it’s the lime that makes it a true part of the dish. The basil is so good in its fresh, herb-infused salad dressing that it’s even named as a salad dressing.
