For full flavor development, add Leaf Basil near the beginning of the cooking process but reserve 1/4 of the seasoning and shortly before serving. For even more flavor, crush the leaves slightly before adding to foods to release the oils and flavors contained within the leaves. Start with 1/4 tsp. per serving and adjust from there.
