Purple Basil


1 bunch

With a clove-like, spicy aroma, and a milder flavor than sweet basil, purple basil makes a gorgeous addition to your meals. The coppery-glow of these purple leaves is best when served raw, but it will also make potentially the best tasting pesto of your life (Even if it does look a little dark). The sweet spiciness also lends itself well to making syrups, vinegars, or desserts!

Trim the ends and store stem-side down in a jar or plastic quart container with an inch or two of water in a sunny, but not hot, spot. Change water every other day for up to 6 days.
