CECILIA'S PESTO     [print]  |  [comments]

huge bunch fresh basil
2 tablespoons pine nuts
3 cloves garlic
pinch of salt
1/2 cup olive oil (usually somewhat more)
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

1. Pinch off the basil leaves from the bunch. Don't wash them (they mustn't be wet).

2. Put them in a mortar along with the pine nuts, the garlic and the salt and work these ingredients over with a pestle until they're completely crushed and well blended together.

3. Put this "paste" into a larger bowl. Alternately add small amounts of olive oil and parmesan cheese, while stirring constantly until you have the desired consistency (creamy).
