Excellent flavor. Only modification was I added some lemon juice. Husband approved!
This was the first time I made pesto. Even my picky husband likes it.
Thank you for the great recipe!
Great recipe. Used Ilias and Sons extra virgin olive oil which added to the very fresh taste.
lovey recipe I didn’t have pine nuts tho so i used breadcrumbs
I skipped the salt, since parm is already a fairly salty cheese. It was really good.
Very good, if it is too strong the flavor, can use a little bit of spinach like the recipe says
How long will it keep? looks delish
This will keep in the refrigerator for about a week. Here’s a tip from Elise: “Basil pesto darkens when exposed to air, so to store, cover tightly with plastic wrap making sure the plastic is touching the top of the pesto and not allowing the pesto to have contact with air. The pesto will stay greener longer that way.”
This is delish… have frozen pesto plenty of times after adding the cheese and it froze fine for me!
This is the first time I have made pesto. Turned out amazing. Omitted the Parmesan cheese due to lactose intolerance.
I lost my recipe for pesto so this was a welcome sight. It is delicious and easy to make.
Oh so simple and oh so delicious.I used 1.5 teaspoons of garlic instead of three and I may even used 1 teaspoon next time.
Thank you so much!
i oven-roasted a knot of garlic along with 3 fresh cloves. awesome :)
Can this be waterbathed?
No, to can this safely you’d need to pressure can. It’s too low acid and too high in oil. And either canning method would destroy the fresh flavor, so freezing is the way to go.
This was delish!!
i had a great experience with my kids doing this wonderful recipe following the steps one by one. I recommend this AMAZING RECIPE.
Can I use macadamia instead? I don’t have any other kind of nuts here at home.
Hmm, Kay, go for it! You can also omit the nuts, but macadamias are rich and oily like pine nuts, so your pesto might end up pretty great.
I want to know how the macadamia nuts turned out.
So easy and very delicious…i have frozen the excess without cheese a great tip thank you
