Bought it twice recently via click and collect. The first pack was dreadful and the whole lot went in the bin. I hoped it was a one off and bought a second pack a week or two later. Again, poor quality. I needed all of it for my recipe but just about to manage to salvage a few leaves which weren’t brilliant but better than nothing. In both cases the use by dates were a couple of days after purchase. I won’t be buying this or any of the other cut herbs in future as I had the same experience with thyme.
Basil goes in everything now
Fresh basil doesn't keep long. I find that freezing it is the best way to keep it longer and it's as fresh as when it first arrived.
Out of date
This arrived this evening 26/05/20 at 21.00pm with a use by date of 26/05/20. Now unless I was going to whip up a lasagne in a few hours the evening after already eaten, this (already brown) Basil, was useless. Can't say I'm a happy customer. Especially as this is advertised as a 2+ day usage. By my standards 3hrs isn't 2+ days.
I was disappointed because it expired the next day
I was disappointed because it expired the next day after I received. Even though, the day that I got my delivery, it already bad, I have to cook the day it was delivered, even though I can only use less than half, never buy it again.
Received this as a substitute for a pot of basil.
Received this as a substitute for a pot of basil. Not only were four packs sent as a replacement but the leaves were of a good size, very fresh and it has lasted for several days in the fridge
