BASIL 
Sometimes called the “king of herbs,” basil is available in more than 30 types, from bright green to purple.

Description:

Basil, also called sweet basil, is the dried leaves of the herb Ocimum basilicum, a member of the mint family. Basil is a small, bushy plant that grows to about two feet tall. Its botanical name is derived from the Greek, “to be fragrant.”

 

Uses

Basil is used in tomato sauces, pestos, pizzas, and cheeses. It is used in green Thai curry blend, bouquet garni, and Italian seasonings.

 

Origins

Although basil is cultivated worldwide, Egypt is the principal source, followed by the United States.

Folklore

The early Romans made it a symbol of love and fertility. Through the centuries, it became a custom of young Italian suitors to wear a sprig of basil as a sign of their marital intentions.

Come and get your basil this Saturday!

Did you know? 

The Feast Day of Brigid, known as Imbolc, is celebrated at the start  of February, midway through the winter. Like the goddess herself, it is meant to give us hope, to remind us that spring is on its way.
