Perfect Basil

This basil is fantastic! Mine was delivered in perfect condition. I used it 3 days later and was still in the same crisp condition it was delivered in. This basil has a sweeter aroma than the other supermarkets, and is very tasty.

Not Great

I recently bought this basil from a Waitrose store a few weeks ago, I popped it in some water and it's actually rooted and still nice and green. Unfortunately the same can't be said for the pack I bought from Ocado. The leaves were really dark and floppy on delivery, some were a bit damaged and it's gotten worse since I've put it in some water. Such a shame. I'm guessing (merely speculating) that it's got something to do with the fact they're stored in a cold warehouse and transported in cold vans, as it's exactly what happens to basil if it's left in the fridge.

I love this basil, tastes wonderful in salads and cooking. I usually keep all my fresh herbs in the freezer, ready to use for a long time.

King of herbs

Lovely stuff, not sure how long people expect basil to last though based on some of the reviews here! , however mine was lovely and fresh.

Product was rotten at point of delivery. Rather unbelievable this had passed any quality inspection for sale...

Piemontese Peppers with Pesto

Piemontese Peppers with Pesto

The pesto and olive oil cook together slowly with the sweet peppers, creating lots of lovely juices to soak up with hunks of crusty bread. Serve the peppers warm or cold, for an al fresco lunch or as a delicious antipasti.

Panzanella Salad

Panzanella Salad

This lovely Italian summer salad was originally created to make use of stale bread! Try to use really ripe and juicy tomatoes. It make a great packed lunch and also goes brilliantly with grilled fish or meat at a barbecue.
