Fresh Basil Buds
4 clamshells, approximately 25 buds per clamshell (about 100 buds)
Basil buds are the tiny clusters of tender green leaves that cluster on the basil plant prior to growing into full sized leaves. Completely edible, they can be used as a garnish on savory or sweet dishes.
Keep basil buds in their plastic clamshells in the refrigerator until you are ready to use them.
Up to seven days.
RECIPES & TIPS
Try sprinkling basil buds on dishes where you would normally use whole basil leaves or a basil chiffonade for an unusual & beautiful presentation. Try using them to garnish mixed drinks, or freezing them into ice cubes for cocktails served on the rocks.
