PESTO - MAKING OUR THIRD SUMMER BATCH

Early this morning, before the glorious summer sun warmed them too much, we brought in armfulls and armfulls of basil branches, rinsed them, patted them dry before picking through them to choose only the most tender leaves and flowered tips to make our third batch of pesto to put in the freezer for the winter.

The picking through part is a bit tedious - the rest is fun: a quick swirl in the food processor of the freshest leaves, extra virgin olive oil, garlic and quality pine nuts...and then quickly whisked into the freezer.

The bounty of summer seems endless...and keeps us happily busy!
