What is Shiso and what do you do with it?

Shiso is the Japanese name for an annual herb called Perilla, which belongs to the mint family. It is used in quite a few Asian cuisines. Shiso comes in green or purple leaves. The one we have growing is Britton which is green on one side and purple on the other. It has a unique and vibrant taste with hints of anise, cinnamon and basil. Like most leafy herbs, it is best used raw, the leaves whole or chopped.
