I have a surfeit of basil. The yield has been too great.
I’ve had to keep potting and repotting until I had 10 pots of basil. I have distributed some to family and neighbours but I still have more basil than I can use.
So I have made pesto. Quite a simple recipe.
Handful of basil leaves
Handful of pine nuts
Good portion of parmesan cheese
Squeeze of lemon
1/2 clove garlic
Mix them all up in a food processor or laboriously smash it all in a pestle and mortar. I would have done this but my pestle and mortar are just too small.
I used Greek basil.
