These are the Italian Large Leaf basil.
And these are the Red Velvet basil!
I love, love, love basil! In the past few years I think I've tried it in about every way you can use it - fresh, dried in recipes, basil salt, but my favorite way to use it is in the Walnut Basil Pesto -- spread on some crusty bread for a delicious sandwich. or on cream cheese with crackers. I've made this stuff many times and it is Yummm! I can not wait!!
