Basil leaf is widely used in Italian, Asian and Mediterranean cuisine, and is one of the main ingredients in pesto. It is sometimes used with fresh fruit or leafy salads. Wonderful with chicken, fish and pasta, and combines beautifully with garlic.
Like other dried herbal leaves, Basil weighs very little per leaf. You get a lot of volume for less weight, as opposed to dried spice powders. The weight might vary slightly in our standard spice jar depending on how fluffy the dried leaves are, which can change during the year. Our standard spice jar holds 1 oz of dried spice powders, like paprika, but only holds 0.3 to 0.4 oz of dried leaves. Net Wt. 0.3 to 0.4 oz.
