Pesto Time

Basil is a favorite herb to grow. We dry it. We freeze it whole leaf. And we love to make pesto with it. Toss some basil, olive oil, garlic, pine nuts, and Parmesan cheese into a blender and blend until a smooth paste. Judge the olive oil quantity on the consistency of the mix. We like to freeze the paste in ice cube trays. After they are frozen, we store the cubes in a bag in the freezer.

Easy uses:

  • Toss a cube on a chicken breast on the grill.
  • Toss a chunked up cube on a piece of fish and broil.
  • Mix cubes into a sauce or soup.
  • Toss a few cubes into hot pasta.
