Thai Basil, Italian Basil… whichever it is, it seems to add pizzazz to any simple salad or a plate of fresh tomatoes. It even adds a touch of heaven when put on top of a clear soup.

I have used this with pork ribs, salmon dishes and as part of a salad dressing. Honey has got anti bacterial and anti inflammatory properties. Dab onto blemishes or over skin, leave 15 minutes and rinse off.
