Shiso, Unkown by Many
Every year I buy shiso from Asian Market , root them in water and plant them. I find this method faster than growing from seeds. Anyway, I think shiso is very flavorful and grows well. It has some taste of basil, lemon balm. And the thing is that it retains lots of its aroma and flavor when dried.
Today I pulled my last shiso plant and hung it in the shed. I did not want to loose it to the frost. I use it like basil and oregano, meat ball, and similar cooking. Beside its good flavor it also has some medicinal benefits
P.S. I am going to make some pesto with it and freeze it. Already have enough dried leaves. .
