everything goes into the food processor
TIP: Buy pine nuts in bulk, the difference in price is amazing. A small jar is equivalent to $60 to $62 per pound. Buying in bulk costs in the low $20s. It pays to purchase in bulk.
2/3 cup olive oil
1/2 cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup loosely packed fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves

Process all ingredients in a food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides as needed.
Next pesto to experiment with will be LEMON PESTO using lemon balm. Can't wait!
