If you have a lot of basil or other herbs in your garden right now, why not make some pesto?
You can freeze it and use it later too. I love pesto. It's kinda expensive though if you buy in the store. So here's my cheapie recipe that'll save you some big $$$$.
Mary's Cheapie Pesto5 cloves fresh garlic

1 cup of extra virgin olive oil
