Tonight I decided to try and make some pesto - and as you can see, I didn't do too badly. You'll probably know that pesto consists of:
- olive oil
- pine nuts
You can use a variation of weights... It's all a matter if trial and error or what you prefer really. Tonight I added too much Parmesan. Next time I'll add more basil! I realised that one basil plant does not hold enough leaves.
The recipe is really simple - just pound all the ingredients with mortar and pestle, adding the olive oil slowly. It's really that easy.
