One of the herbs I love growing most is basil. It’s quick growing, easy to take care of, and grows plentiful. I think it’s also one of the most flavorful herbs you can grow fresh. Compared to its dry, store-bought counterpart, homegrown basil makes a world of difference.
But what to do when you have too much basil and it’s starting to seed? Never fear! Pesto is a quick and easy way to take care of too much basil. (Is there really such a thing?) Like basil itself, homemade pesto with fresh basil tastes a world of difference better than its jar companions. Better yet, pesto its super easy to make, especially if you have a blender. If you don’t it’s still possible; you can use any type of food processor, or you can do it by hand like it was a originally done with a mortar and pestle.
