The name basil comes from the Greek word basileus meaning king, Basil is a very versatile ingredient. The leaves can easily be blanched and frozen so you can use it at your leisure. Its gorgeous eaten fresh, added to a sandwich for example, or cooked in a dish for added flavour. Add it at the last minute though as cooking reduces the intensity of the flavour.
