Japanese Red Basil Bread
My sister in Japan and my Japanese friend in the UK sometimes give me Japanese food. Believe it or not, I've never bought Japanese food in the UK although a range of products are now available in supermarkets. Here is bread baked with Japanese dried red basil flakes which had been forgotten in the cupboard. These flakes are a mixture of dried red basil and salt which are the essential ingredients for making Japanese pickled sour plums, which are popular with rice in Japan.
Red basil flakes are great just sprinkled on top of a bowl of rice.
So, I thought to myself, why not put red basil in bread? Here is Japanese red basil bread.
