I always wait until the very last minute to make my pesto for the year... and according to the news, today is perhaps the absolute last possible minute. It may frost tonight so if you have basil plants, pick the branches/leaves off and tomorrow (or later tonight) I will post a easy recipe for making this delightful sauce!
I learned to make pesto from Mara, the mom of the Italian family I lived with over the summer a couple years ago. Every since then, it has been a must make for me every year.
I make a ton of pesto every year and freeze it in small silicon ice cube trays. 1 of the cubes is the perfect portion for a single serving of pesto.
