We’re surrounded by wild garlic in the woods around here at the moment and so Mum made some Wild Garlic Pesto today. She said it would be good to post on the blog so here’s the recipe:
Wild Garlic Pesto
For every 100g of wild garlic leaves
200ml olive oil
50g pine nuts or walnuts
1-2 cloves garlic (if you like it punchy)
Salt and pepper
Blanch the leaves in boiling water for about 10 secs then cool and dry quickly. After that whizz the leaves with the oil, nuts and garlic until smooth. Then add the Parmesan (grated) and season. Hey presto – it’s pesto!
