Cinnamon Basil

small h | Mar 20, 201904:19 PM     3

I received a free seed packet of this herb in my Baker Creek order, and it's grown like something out of Sleeper. According to the interwebs, it's also called either Thai basil or Mexican basil (?) and it tastes like cinnamon. Except what I've grown doesn't, really. It tastes more like licorice. Have you ever used this stuff in a recipe? Any ideas for making the most of what promises to be a summer-long supply?
