What to do will the wonderful basil you are growing or buying at your farmer's market?
Pesto: A few cups basil, 1/2 cup pine nuts or walnuts (great for the omega fats), olive oil, garlic to taste (fresh or jar). Puree in a food processor.
What to do with the pesto? Freeze it in ice cube trays. Once frozen, pop out and into a freezer bag to enjoy in soup, pasta, or rice during the winter. For now, you can store in the refrigerator for a week, and cook it on baked chicken. Enjoy it anyway you like.
Drizzle some extra oil on top, if you wish, to make freezing easier.
