Experimenting in the kitchen today... created some organic basil jam... i will use in salads, pastas, & perhaps come up with some other ideas along the way.....
Many culinary herbs offer medicinal properties, but basil is especially useful in offering a number of valuable health benefits. Essential oils and standardized extracts are the most potently medicinal forms of basil, though fresh basil leaves also provide antioxidant and immune-boosting properties. The volatile oils of dried basil are weak, so fresh basil is almost always preferable as a culinary use.
Jam smelled & tasted really good!!
