The making of the Basil Pesto

Now your moment of Zen.  Back in August 29 of 2017 I posted my recipe for making Basil Pesto.  You can go back to find it (or just type pesto into the search bar).  I made this minute long video to show you how it is made.  Two notes, I have increased the amount of pine nuts to 1/2 cup from the original recipe.  Also, the real secret is have fresh from the plant basil.  Store bought will not provide the same results.  Moments before the pesto was made the leaves you see were on the basil bushes in my Aerogarden year round basil patch.  Hope you enjoy.
