I think the summer has finally come to Durham. It is almost sunny and I have been spending my days sitting in the sun and drinking
champagne cava. There have been lots of picnics and barbecues but this means that I haven’t been cooking much. However I made time to make this quick but awesome pesto. It is amazing how much better this is compared to the stuff from the jar, I mean I could just eat this with a spoon.
This is a classic pesto recipe using fresh basil and toasted pine nuts. I like to add a dash of lemon juice for a bit of a zing. This is super quick and easy to make in a food processor but it can be made using pestle and mortar.
