Delicious! If pine nuts aren't readily available, walnuts, pecans or even almonds are great substitutes. Doesn't hurt to add a bit of lemon juice and a pinch of salt, too. We always plant basil so we can have a plentiful supply for pesto. We have successfully been able to preserve it by pressing plastic wrap on the surface of the pesto in a glass storage jar, then sealing with a plastic top and keeping in the refrigerator, or by spraying ice cube trays with olive oil, filling with pesto and freezing. Once solidly frozen, pop out and store in a freezer bag in the freezer, taking out only as many 'pesto cubes' as we need for our recipes.
