As you know I love Basil and I love Pesto. So my sweet husband planted 14 Basil plants for me this year so that I could make all of the Pesto I wanted!
He had gotten up earlier than me and made this wonderful drying table for me to use to stack the Basil on. It is going to be great to dry our mint on when we harvest it this week. I know you are thinking what a sweetie he is and your right!!
Pesto is really easy to make but since we quit eating dairy over a year ago I needed to find a recipe that didn’t call for Parmesan cheese. I found one that just called for Basil, olive oil, and garlic. All you do is put your Basil leaves and garlic into the food processor then turn it on and add your olive oil in the opening at the top until it is all blended and smooth.
Then put it into jars or freeze. I put some into jars to keep in the fridge but froze the rest. I made a little over a gallon of Pesto today!! Most Pesto recipes call for the cheese and Pine nuts or walnuts. Janette over at The 2 Seasons has a great Pesto recipe from Ina the Barefoot Contessa that I am going to try next time minus the cheese. It looks really good.. Do you like Pesto and have you ever made your own? Don’t forget since I changed to Disqus you need to leave the link to your blog in the comments so I can come visit you. Thanks.
Chef’s Friend bar is back!! I love this bar and I can’t begin to tell you how thrilled I am that it gets rid of all of the garlic smell off of my hands after making Pesto. This bar is awesome at getting rid of any fish, garlic, onion and most any other strong odors from your hands.So check it out at Eco Natural
