I dabble in the kitchen frequently and make many very fine/tasty meals. Cooking something prepared and seasoned properly makes the difference between something being average in flavor, or being the most pleasing to your palate. When I'm in the mode of buying my spices, of which I have many, I will only purchase certain brands that I consider to be a step or more above the norm. One of those brands is Tone's. I happen to use Tone's Basil Leaf, Oregano, Cayenne, and a few others. Spices either have a very nice taste, or they just don't measure up to the competition. Taste is subjective, but many times what brand you buy makes the difference in your decision of whether you like the type of spice or not. With Tone's Sweet Basil Leaf, the taste is superb. I don't want basil to have too mild a flavor, nor too bold. In this case Tone's has the perfect level of flavor and the fact that you don't have to put as much basil on the item your cooking tells me I've got a very fine product. This basil has lots of flavor and is as close to fresh basil as possibly can be expected. With spices, nothing in the prepared state can match the fresh product, but where fresh product isn't needed the 'right' dried spices are wonderful. There are meals for which only fresh basil will do, but for everything else, it's Tone's basil leaf that I reach for. Don't hesitate buying any of Tone's products, as I've never been displeased even the slightest bit. I purchase so many products from Amazon because their prices are normally better than the rest of the companies I search and believe me, I'm a fervent shopper. Amazon's service is also second to none and their shipping is fast even if you aren't a Prime member, I am a Prime member, however, because I love to get my orders extra fast and there are many other things included in your membership. I hope this was very helpful to you.

Sweet basil works wonders for migraines. just sayin. Make a pizza with the following:
* sweet basil
* garlic
* (ground) rosemary
* cayenne/red chili flakes (based on preference)
* turmeric/curcumin (the latter would be impressive)
* thyme
* a pinch of ground lemongrass
* don't forget the pepper!

With a few exceptions, it turns pretty much any frozen pizza into a beast.

You will have the most pain-relieving pizza ever.

Works best with grass/herb alongside...if you catch me, 420ers.

I adore Basil, let's just get that out there. But I'm pretty frugal, let's get that out there too, so I've generally bought fairly low-end Basil, nothing all that fancy. But given how much Basil I use, the Tone's (at $7.20 or $1.30/oz) worked out to be a good deal, so I thought I'd take a chance. Oh, I'm glad I did! This is good, sweet Basil, with none of the bitterness that sometimes affects dried herbs like Basil and Oregano, for example. I'm prone to use a pretty heavy hand with Basil, sometimes removing the shaker top and just dumping, so I'm delighted I won't be running out any time soon. I couldn't find any expiration date on the bottle but it certainly seems fresh.

My favorite recipe using Basil is my own version of one in Heartburn. If you google "Linguine Alla Cecca Nora Ephron" you should be able to find the recipe from her novel. For my own quick & easy version, I combine drained canned diced tomatoes (I like Furmano's) with olive oil, a halved peeled garlic clove, and plenty of dried Basil in a bowl. If you like it spicier, you can add red pepper flakes. Cook linguine, drain. Remove the garlic cloves from the tomato mix and discard - you're just going for subtle flavoring, not full-on garlic breath. Pour tomatoes over pasta and mix. Heaven! For variations, I add things like chopped clams, chopped black olives, or capers, depending on what I've got on-hand.

I looked a lot of places for this spice and was unable to find it in the stores anywhere..but, since I usually find almost everything I need or want on amazon I figured I would try to find it on here...the bottle is pretty big and I really love this spice for my chicken enchiladas...

Item came well package, and sealed. I did NOT need to open for a year. They are still fresh-enough for cooking use after sitting on shelf (unopened, unsealed) for 12 mos. after I received.... good stuff.

I purchased November 2013 with expiration date Sept 2015, opened Jul 2014. The container seal was not damaged and the product does not smell or taste like the expected version I love. This container has notes of anise or fennel and possesses no sweet quantity. Since I cannot buy locally to compare to another unit, I cannot verify the company has changed the materials placed into this packaging. For the last few years, this has been my most loved basil, with floral notes adding my preferred level of sweetness to Italian dishes.

Tone's basil gives the typical high quality taste and freshness that you can expect from the Tone's brand. The 5.5 oz shaker gives plenty of basil that will last you a long time. Packaging is great with a very functional top making it easy to store and use.
