Making pesto day
After a pleasant morning drinking coffee and reading the paper on the patio, it was time for some work around here. I weeded the asparagus, cut basil, and mowed the lawn, while Jim peeled garlic for my later project, homemade pesto.
He even had me shoot video of his method of peeling garlic. You can see it here.
I use a recipe given to me by my friend Valerie Naylor. Pine nuts, freshly grated parmesan, basil, extra-virgin olive oil, and garlic - voila! I scoop it into an ice cube tray, freeze, pop out, and bag it in a ziploc.
Yummy all winter long. But for now, the kitchen smells divine!
