Goodness, my kids love pesto making day. I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with pesto making. Love the pesto. Hate the mess. And boy do my kids make a mess with pesto! Squished pesto in an ear? Not my favourite thing to clean. My kids adore it though, so I just suck it up and let them go for it!
When I make pesto, I make a lot. Enough to freeze to last us the best part of the year. So when I get home late at night, there's instant dinner I know the kids will eat.
Oh and I just know you're wondering what the mortar and pestle is doing in the picture if I use my food processor right? Well that's what the kids use. Keeps them busy making their own pesto for half an hour while I get the big lot done!
A big triple yay that the basil, garlic and lemon all came from our garden for this pesto!
