Pesto v. 1.0

After spending some time in the herb patch this morning, I decided to make pesto. 

The first experiment involved sage and cashews. 

Classic pesto contains basil, pine nuts, garlic, Parmesan cheese and olive oil. 

I decided to do something a bit different. I picked a huge bunch of sage leaves, and threw them in my mini food processor with 2 small cloves of garlic, some salt and pepper, cashews and olive oil. I didn't add the cheese because I'm going to freeze this. I'll add grated Parmesan when I'm ready to use it. 

I just blitzed everything into a paste, scraped it into a small mason jar, put a layer of olive oil on the top, and popped it in the freezer.
