Since our plants might be in for more frosty nights, I decided to collect some basil leaves to make a little jar of pesto. And, it was divine. I won't list out the steps or the recipe since I more-or-less followed Jamie Oliver's recipe but I will suggest this: if you own a food processors, save yourself the time and effort of squishing leaves with a mortar and pestle and just use the modern technology.

I started off grinding the sea salt and peppercorn, then adding leaves little by little, but I eventually realized that my mini food processor would do a much better job. 

And it did. Flippin delicious on pizza with bocconcini, sliced avocado and balsamic vinegar.
