For many of our North Carolina farmer partners, the 2018 basil growing season was a challenging one. It also presented us with an opportunity: to explore a late-season variant of our Southern Basil to include other herbs that complemented our summer saison.
For this one-off twist on Southern Basil, we started with traditional "Genovese" basil, then added local lemon basil, lemongrass, and pineapple sage. The result, not surprisingly, is a punchy, lemony, and herbal saison -- literally Southern Basil with a twist.
