Genovese Basil by pitchfork diaries: The traditional Italian large-leafed variety of sweet basil that we all know and love. Ideal for all things pesto, but best when the leaves are small. If the leaves are huge, blanch them quickly to remove some of the (too) strong flavor, making them more suitable for a delicately balanced pesto sauce. tinyurl.com/7vxl6z7 image via Wikimedia Commons #Basil #Herbs #pitchforkdidaries #Wikipedia
