|Ready for the freezer...30 1/2 cups of pesto.|
When one is married to an Italian...you grow basil and tomatoes. I harvested pounds of basil. Most of the leaves were removed for pesto. But I had so much that I put some in a vase and the kitchen is filled with the smell of fresh basil. There will be more made in a week or so. What this means to me: is in January when I can't think of what to make for dinner...pesto. Bob is always delighted and amazed by this.
|Basil, green chili, eggplant, tomatoes, eggs, and feathers.|
Above is yesterday's harvest. I will freeze the Monzano plum tomatoes and when I defrost them the skins just slip off. I discovered this by accident, no more dropping into boiling water. This method is much easier.
