It's a great day for Basil!
Here is the approximate recipe for hand chopped fresh Pesto.
Pick as much Basil as you want. No matter how much I use it doesn't seem to be too much. Oh, and wash off the dirt if you like.
I like to chop the Walnuts first.
Mince two or more garlic cloves. it al depends on the freshness of your garlic and how much of a garlic flavor you want
Ingredients:1-2 cups of Basil
about a cup of Walnuts, Pecans, Pine nuts, or even almonds work too
2-4 cloves of Garlic
salt to taste
About 2 cups of olive oil
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
