I didn’t have enough basil, and it turned out that the recipe said to put much too much olive oil, but it still came out fine ( I added the rest of the pine nuts to soak up the oil). Home made fresh pesto is easy to whizz together in a food processor (not a liquidizer) and tastes delicious when made with nice ingredients. We had some with toast for our evening snack and today John put some on the aubergine that he cooked for dinner.
