Weekend Herb Blogging - Basil

This week's Weekend Herb Blogging is hosted by The Well Seasoned Cook

The basil was going to flower and being engulfed by the zucchini so I cut most of it this morning.  My favorite recipe for Pesto is from the Deborah Madison cookbook "Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone".  The best part is when she instructs you to add softened butter!

Pine nuts, garlic, basil

Grind nuts with garlic, then add basil and oil.  Blend until smooth

Normally, now is when you add parmesan cheese and the butter.  I am going to freeze this, so I omitted cheese and butter

Freeze in ice cube trays, then transfer to ziplock bag
