From India. Along with rosemary, oregano and thyme, basil makes up the usual fourth herb in Italian seasoning. However, basil is fabulous in its own right. Pairs well with tomato, egg and pasta dishes and of course, pizza! Try combining basil with freshly ground sea salt and sprinkle it over popcorn, or add garlic, lemon and olive oil with basil then brush on fish or seafood.
