Greens are abundant this time of year rather it be from your garden, your CSA Share or from the Farmers Market. Pesto 3 Ways is a great way to utilize those greens.
How was your weekend? Did you enjoy the last weekend of summer? I was just happy that it was a three day weekend. The family (the husband, middle daughter Kiley and SIL & BIL Kathy & Dave) and I went to the Appleton’s Farmers Market to see my daughter Mackenzie, it was her last market before she headed back to college. We had a nice day bumming in Appleton.
Sunday was spent canning for the day. Cowboy Candy, Hot Peppers, Chipotle Sauce and Tomato Sauce were canned. We ended the day with Chicken that the husband made on the smoker. And lastly, Monday was spent doing much of nothing, just enjoying the day off and catching up on recipes and the blog.
Pesto 3 ways uses kale, broccoli and celery leaves to create three different kinds of pestos that are all equally delicious in my book. Pesto is always made up with a green, parmesan cheese, a nut, olive oil and garlic.
I am featuring Celery Pesto which uses celery leaves and walnuts, Kale Pesto which uses kale and cashews and Broccoli Kale Pesto which uses broccoli, kale and walnuts. Pesto stores well in the fridge for approx. 2 weeks and in the freezer for up to 3 months.
I will be featuring recipes in the next couple of days to use your Pesto 3 Ways with. So stay tuned for ways to use pesto.
