Today we made pesto. These simple 4 ingredients, basil, garlic, olive oil, and, salt, can be whipped up to a pesto for a spread on french bread or a sauce for pasta. It took us just a few minutes to blend.

We can have our basil and eat it too. We’ll plant it for future use, along with a few cloves of garlic.
