Where has BASIL Pesto been all my life?

Believe it or not after all the years of growing basil, I have never tasted pesto. I had planted about two 50 foot rows of basil plants and was planning to make basil vinegar for sale...... but since sales have been down, I decided not to waste anymore vinegar -- until I sell one bottle.

So with about two bushel of herb, I decided to make a small batch. I think I always shied away from pesto, due to the large amount of oil and nuts.

I cut this out of the local Chronicle Telegram based in Elyria Ohio, and uses less oil and nuts then other recipes I had researched.

2 solid cups basil leaves
2 clove garlic (I use 3 since I love garlic).
1/4 cup toasted walnuts
salt and pepper to taste
Whirl in food processor then add
about 6 Tablespoons Olive Oil

Enjoy!!!
