Lemon and Saffron Pesto Pesto
In the past I ran my own market stall making pesto (8 varieties) from beetroot to the basic basil. Unfortunately due to ever increasing fees and laws, combined with lack of time I decided to finish up. I was doing this before there where so many varieties on the supermarket shelves, I loved it and so did my customers, so much so that I got offered to bottle the product by a company but turned it down. Anyway here is the recipe for the Lemon and Saffron pesto.
So you will need a food processor for this. This is a very different pesto and the flavours are very unique. It is not something you will see every day and can be a wonderful dip or accompaniment for a baked white fish like hapuka.
There are also recipes for beetroot and dill pesto, capsicum pesto, sunblushed tomato pesto (taste like bolognaise), pea and mint pesto and basil pesto.
