Black Spots on Basil Leaves

Anonymous added on August 27, 2011 | Answered

We found numerous black spots on our basil leaves. We were going to harvest for drying. Are they safe to dry and use, or for freezing?

They are safe to eat. It is a fungus called black spot. It will not harm you and should not affect the flavor.
