Pesto, the basic process

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Here are the basics, fresh basil, pan toasted pine nuts, and first pressing olive oil. Vibrant colors and vibrant flavors, things do not get better.

Fill your processor bowl loosely with fresh basil leaves, this is a 4oz package from the market.

Add 1 1/2 t salt, 2 large garlic cloves, pine nuts and some oil. Begin processing.......at 30 seconds or so, stop.

Scrape down sides of the bowl, add more oil and cheese. Begin processing again, again about 30 seconds, stop.

Pesto the basic process, get creative and use any herb desired.
Pesto, a basic process for any flavor you choose.
This is what you will see in the bottom of the processor bowl, a thick billowy sea of green. See how the pesto does not fall into a puddle against the blade.

Spoon into small freezer jars. Freeze. When needed, shave off slivers and return the jar to the freezer.

Enjoy!
