Who says you have to wait for basil to come in to make fresh, local pesto? I tend to throw things together in the food processor, and pay no heed to amounts. With pesto, it's hard to go wrong. Taste as you go, add what you need, and put the extra in jars. Yum.

We put pesto on everything....rice, bread, veggies, pasta, you name it.
