Growing Cinnamon Basil

Cinnamon basil is my favorite basil. It has a wonderful licorice flavor that makes it stand out in any dish.

One of my favorite dishes to add cinnamon basil to is tomato soup, we add a half cup of chopped cinnamon basil to one and a half gallons of tomato soup to add a spicy, licorice tone to the soup.

Cinnamon basil is also a unique addition to any pasta dish and compliments all tomato dishes nicely.
