Is your garden producing more basil than you know what to do with? Did you just end up with a giant bunch of basil from your CSA and are at a loss of what to do with this beautiful bouquet? Fresh basil pesto is the answer! Not only can use enjoy this pesto now, but you can easily freeze it in small containers to enjoy throughout the fall and winter months as well.
Note: The fresh pesto will keep in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. This pesto freezes well in ice cube trays, which can then be thawed out for use in pasta, on sandwiches, or however you enjoy pesto.
