    • It was delicious and simple to prepare:

      Basil Pesto recipe

      Ingredients
      – 2 cups of Basil leaves
      – 1 cup of Parmesan cheese
      – 1/2 cup of pine nuts
      – 1/2 cup of Virgen olive oil
      – Salt and pepper to your liking

      Directions
      1. Dry the leaves well
      2. In the food processor, add the ingredients and blend
      3. When it’s all mixed, add te olive oil
      4. When it’s creamy, put it in a sterile glass jar
      5. Add more olive oil so the leaves don’t turn brown

      Let me know how it turns out.

  1. Those are some hardy basil seeds! I could never get basil to grow as healthy as that, and it certainly never traveled to a neighboring garden! (Now I’m craving some pesto on this snowy day.)

    • The storm is much stronger than I was expecting ❄️❄️😛❄️ A nice day to stay in and enjoy something tasty
