Pesto is one of those foods I told myself “it wasn’t worth making at home.” It was just so easy to buy the little jar and it lasts forever (or rather; used once and never to be seen again until it’s eventually recovered from the recesses of the fridge during a clean out). Rinse and repeat. Who knew it was so quick, delicious and healthy to make your own? Well, lots of people, I suppose. But now you do too! I’m sharing my new found wisdom with you.
