There are dozens of ways to use Lemon basil in the kitchen. It makes a great pesto or chiffonade to top fish or shrimp, adds an extra kick to flavored vinegars, is an excellent accompaniment to light pastas like angel hair (capelli d’angelo) or bow tie (farfalle), and adds a tangy note to citrus or blueberry desserts. More compact than many other basil varieties, so it’s perfect in small spaces. Can be grown indoors in a warm, south window! Recipe for Basil Herb Oil inside packet.
