The name "basil" comes from the Greek word for "kingly"; it's an herb used by both royalty and peasantry for thousands of years.
Strong, pungent, and a little sweet, basil is indeed the king of herbs in Italian and Southeast Asian cuisine. Use it to make red sauce, pesto, or Vietnamese pho, or to liven up pizzas and curry! 1 oz
