Heyy! 🙂 I’m still busy with studying and making notes for a totally boring presentation at university, but as usual, I always reward myself with something I love and today my little reward for being hard-working was to make pesto after a recipe by my lovely friend Anja.
Here’s what you need:
– Lots of fresh basil (I bought three pots with a basil shrub)
– Fresh oregano (I forgot to include it in the photo :))
– Fresh Parmesan
– Pine nuts
– Fresh garlic
– Olive oil
– Salt (I used really good organic sea salt)
– According to Anja’s recipe, you can also use parsley, but I don’t like it, so I left it out 🙂
First, crush the pine nuts, the herbs and the garlic. Next, do the same with the Parmesan. Put everything into one bowl, stir everything together with the olive oil and add some salt.
Then, fill the mixture in sterile jars and pour some olive oil on top, this way it can be kept longer. 🙂
I always collect empty jars and thus, I don’t have to spend money on buying some. 🙂
To decorate the jars, I sticked little lables onto them (I got them from Stef of magnoliaelectric <3) and fixed some fabric squares to the top, sooo pretty!
This pesto has turned out more than delicious, it’s perfect with some pasta. <3
I wish you all a nice week! 🙂
