The Russian folk tale about Basilisk. The prince marries a king's daughter, but after the marriage the son-in-law is left in charge of the castle while his wife and her family leaves on a journey. The king leaves him with one hundred keys to the one hundred doors, but he is warned that he may open the first ninety-nine doors, but under no circumstances must he open the last door. His disobedience and later recovery. How this relates to the basil plant. Description of the herb and its culinary uses. May be used fresh or dry, but be careful not to overuse. (12:26)
