Fresh homemade Pesto sauce….anytime of the year!

 I know I know.....this post is a little out of season....especially here in Michigan but I came across some photos that I set aside for this post.

 My family loves it when we have fresh pesto sauce around the house.  Every summer I make sure to have at least 3 large plants to use. So if you love fresh pesto I have a secret to keeping it around for you!



This is my deck planter closest to the house. The other plants are in my garden so when I'm feeling lazy I just get it here from the deck.   This is not what my basil looks like right now....unfortunately!  





This recipe is so easy and you will love having this fresh pesto anytime you want.   



After measuring out what I need  then all goes in the food processor until well blended. 




I have found several different combinations and amounts to use on the web for making pesto but you can use which ever one suites your tastes...but here's the key to having it anytime you want.  I get out my mini muffin tins and fill them up then in the freezer they go. After they freeze solid I pop them out and put them in a freezer ziplock for later use.  How easy is that?  Usually 2 pucks will coat a single dish of pasta. 
So when those springtime plants come out go buy 2-3 plants and you will have pesto sauce all summer. 



I have flexible trays so it makes for easy out with the pucks. 




Here is the basic recipe I use but you can tweak it anyway you like. 
2 packed cups of basil leaves
1cup of good olive oil
1cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup pine nuts
2 cloves garlic
1tsp salt

I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!  
Thanks for stopping by today...if you have a pesto recipe you love please share it with us!

What an awesome idea to freeze the pesto like this!!!! Love that! I freeze herbs in ice-cube trays in either water or olive oil, but this is such a great idea too! Thanks so much for the tip!!!!

Love that you froze them in the silicone trays! What a great idea....I always have trouble removing from the metal trays because they're too rigid.

You can never have too much pesto - love the freezer tip, and I'm going to be trying to grow my own basil this year so I hope to have chance to make my own very soon!
