MEDFORD, Ore. — Many gardens are starting to fade; and so is some of the enthusiasm for finding things to do with the abundance of what the garden produces.
One of basil’s most common uses is pesto and it’s very easy to make. To do it on your own at home, it’s fairly simple: Take a handful of basil from your garden, 5 or 6 cloves of garlic, lots of olive oil, and throw it all in a blender. Stefano Cipollone from Cicily’s Restaurant also added Parmesan cheese, pine nuts and lemon zest to his blend. For more details, see video above.
