Gourmet Garden Basil Stir-In Paste contains 3 bunches of Australian grown, organic sweet basil that keeps fresh for weeks.
Our Genovese basil plants begin life in the fertile Callide Valley in central Queensland and are harvested in the early morning when their essential oils are at their peak. From there they are transported within 18 hours of harvest to our Palmwoods factory where they are washed, chopped and blended with oils, salts and sugars before being packed into handy tubes.
Basil is best added at the end of your cooking and is ideal in Italian dishes: pasta, pizza, creamy sauces, dressings, soups and frittatas.
In cooking use 1 tbsp of stir-in paste to replace 1 tbsp of fresh basil or add according to your taste.
