I seem to be having a bumper crop of basil this year!
Good thing that I love basil!!
My neighbor, an avid gardener, taught me how to make
3 Part Pesto Today.
The reason it's called 3 Part is because of the 5 ingredients you use in pesto
(basil, olive oil, garlic, pine nuts, and parmesan cheese,)
you only use
You need a lot of basil to make one batch.
Sandy said that she uses 4 cups.
I just cut a lot of my basil.
You also need garlic. I used an entire head in this recipe.
I filled my food processor with basil to the top of the bowl.
I also added the garlic and some olive oil!
I don't know how much olive oil I added, I just poured a thin layer on the bottom.
along with the garlic.
I also added more olive oil and salt.
When everything was finely ground, I put the
3 Part Pesto
into an ice cube tray.
I filled all the squares in the tray.
My 3 part pesto is now in the freezer.
I'll take it out of the cubes tomorrow and put the pesto in a plastic bag.
It will be delicious when the snow falls and I'm making spaghetti or beef stew.
I'm only saying this now because
I love pesto!
I can hardly wait for the first snow fall.
