This summer was ideal for Thai basil and our garden was Thai basil central. We dried a small amount of the basil, and the extraordinary tropical fruit and floral aromas of the dried basil immediately made us think of blueberries. We knew we had to make a bar combining the two. Sadly, we only dried a few handfuls of the basil so this bar is limited....until next summer when we plant some more!
The dried basil was infused into the chocolate during the grind and the dried Ontario berries, chopped and added during tempering.
This is one my favourite bars if only for its serendipity!
