I’ve also included my favorite recipe and a few gratuitous close-ups of the green goop. There is a good instructable on actually making there stuff here.
Any comments or actual hard facts on why not freeze the pureed cheese with the pesto? I always see advice on not doing that but have had bad experience with it… I suppose it may taste slightly fresher if done when thawed but I cant tell the dif…
Step 1: Make pesto and put in ziplock type bag
Step 2: Get out ice cube trays and cut bag
Remove ice. Place in your drink or give to the dog.
Line up your ice trays.
Cut a corner of the bag (not the corner where the zipper is...) with a pair of scissors - i think a 1/2 inch size hole is good. Be careful that is does not start squirting out as soon as you cut the bag...
Step 3: Squeeze it. Its fun.
Squeeze the pesto into each cube section. Do not overfill. Better to do more batches than overfill it and have a mess on your hands.
After the trays are full, level off the pesto, cover with saran wrap and press saran wrap into the pesto. This reduces oxidation (dark green color).
