What’s a Basil Sprig?

Ever wonder, what’s a basil sprig? Some recipes call for a “basil sprig”, but don’t explain what it actually is.

A basil sprig is a cluster of  basil leaves held together with the stem. They can be used in sauces, soups and stocks for a wonderful, fresh basil flavor.

I like to add a fresh sprig of basil to my marinara sauce right at the end. The fresh taste of basil is just enough when cooked for about 5-7 minutes.
