Recipes & Tips
Basil, a member of the mint family, is a flavorful, leafy green herb that originated in Asia and Africa. This plant loves hot weather, so it is flourishing in gardens right now! Once picked, basil is at its best if used within two days. Wrap the leaves in a paper towel, place them in a plastic bag, and then pop them in the refrigerator. Or, for longer use, consider drying your basil and enjoy the flavor all year!
A jalapeno pepper can vary in heat level from between 2,500 and 8,000 Scoville units. Part of the reason jalapenos (and many other peppers) occupy such a wide range of the heat scale is that their hotness depends on when during the growing season they’re harvested (heat and rain also have an effect). But don't be scared of their zip - adding just the right amount to a recipe just ups the flavor without making it too hot. Dairy products or fruit (like in our Jungle Jams) can help to reduce the heat. Want it hotter? Add more jalapenos and don't remove any of the inner bits!
