Making FRESH Pesto from your garden!
Fresh Pesto, right from my garden! I grow quite a few herbs, and use them for many different dishes. Basil grows both outside and all winter long, indoors as well... so, I end up with plenty of basil. For me, I tend make large batches of Pesto, when I am harvesting Basil and freeze some. Check out this short video for how I prepare my basil, both for fresh Pesto Tossed with Pasta, and also, for how I prep it for freezing into ice cube trays, for using in later recipes. My gardens are in New England, zone 6b/7a.
For me, I am growing my own garlic and my own basil! I add fresh Pine Nuts, and the best Extra Virgin Olive Oil I can get, from a farm in Greece. Some people add salt, but I leave that to each person eating, at the table. As well, some pesto's have Parmesan cheese in them, while I prefer to add Parm right on my dish, as it is served.
Please let me know in the comments, are you growing are you growing any herbs? what do you do with all the herbs you harvest?
...and of course, if you SHARE the Video, too! MANY Thanks!
And that makes me smile... better for the planet, better for my own family.
