Making pesto

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.
