Good morning. It's mild and sunny today and if feels as if Spring might not be so far away. I made pesto last night. Basil, garlic, pine nuts, parmesan and olive oil. We actually had all those ingredients either in the fridge or on the kitchen windowsill and so it was destined to be pasta pesto for tea.
Broken mugs make useful pots for supermarket herbs. I don't have a very good record with these mugs. Maybe I should stop letting Angus help me empty the dishwasher.
I didn't really follow a recipe, just threw what we had into the blender. I think it needed more basil. If anyone has a tried and tested pesto recipe I would love to hear it. We had it on the rest of the fancy pasta left over from the weekend and it was good. I took a ridiculous amount of satisfaction from pouring it into the jam jar. I do love filling a jam jar with something I've made. Roll on summer fruits season and jam making!
