magic!

September 16, 2015

Do I think magic exists?  Yes.  You wanna know I how know?  Because I was able to turn this:

herbs

 

Into a bunch of pesto that will last me all winter:

pesto

(Okay, so I didn’t actually turn all the mint into pesto, just the basil and sage, because mint pesto would probably be kind of…interesting.  But I will turn the mint into tea which will be AWESOME. And magical.)

    Actually, mint (plus flat-leaf parsley, a touch of garlic, and a touch of marjoram) makes a fabulous pesto to add as a “finisher” to a lot of Middle Eastern dishes. Half a teaspon tossed in just before serving turns maftoul from the bland equivalent of instant mashed potatoes into something that can actually stand up to a khoresh or a grilled meat dish…

    Mint tea is nice. Also, we’re rather fond of this lemon and mint cordial recipe: http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2013/jun/21/preserve-recipes-fearnley-whittingstall


  3. Mint pesto is right tasty, and in fact I’ve served it to you multiple times, stuffed into a leg of lamb.

    Blend mint with a little olive oil, some bread crumbs, garlic, and pine nuts. Smear on whatever needs smearing, and you’re good!
