As the basil has grown and with the winter her we had to prune it, Karen and I decided to try to make pesto and the result has been very good.
The recipe is very simple. Add the following to a small bowl:
- Basil leaves (enough to nearly fill the bowl).
- A couple of garlic.
- A handful of nuts (pine nuts are usually added but we didn’t have).
- Half a coup of oil
- A slice of cheese (parmesan ideally).
Then grind everything for a couple of minutes and the sauce is ready to enjoy with some delicious pasta or salad.
