a summer treat

Mama J's garden fresh homemade pesto.  Add all the ingredients the recipe (pictured above) calls for into the blender and puree.  Add sea salt and cayenne to taste, a half a teaspoon of each (eyed not actually measured) worked perfect for me this time. I added my fresh made pesto to some pasta and topped with herbed goat cheese...YUM!  You can eat your pesto with crackers, fresh bread, use it as a sauce for homemade pizza or a salad dressing. The options are nearly boundless and it's so rewarding to create a delicious meal using bits from your own garden.

note // the original recipe called for pine nuts & pepper but being a belle of the south I used pecans & cayenne

>>> make it your own + ENJOY <<<
