Salad Days in Brooklyn

Good things from the garden. We're just about to make a big batch of Pesto, but we have to get to Sahadi's to buy a bunch of pine nuts first.

UPDATE: Results here.

Hi McBrooklyn,
Your Basil looks better than mine...
I am weeks from my first batch of pesto.
Lately, instead of pine nuts, I have been using blanched almonds. A bit less fat, a bit cheaper and tastes just as good.

Mint has been growing in abundance in my little patch of garden this year.
We are making lots of iced mint tea.

Hi Katia,
I just got back from Key Food with a bag of blanched almonds. That was a big revelation to me -- I'll let you know how it turned out, thanks.
