Last night I embarked upon what may have been my greatest culinary experiment to date. I don’t want to over sell this, but, I believe what I did with leftover turkey would have made even the most proper puritan dance with glee!
12 large basil leaves
5 sage leaves
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon sugar
3-4 tablespoons of olive oil
1/2 cup walnuts
Combine most of the ingredients in a large food processor bowl -reserve a tablespoon of the oil and a little of all the others. Pulse machine until the pesto is coarsely ground. Add the remaining ingredients slowly, to taste, pulse to combine. The finished pesto will be a course paste. Place in a sealed container and refrigerate for at least four hours to allow the flavors to develop. Use the pesto as a dip for veggies or crackers or with pasta or pizza.
