elderpesto…..big garden

Our project is really fantastic, but have some points for improvement. But we are definitely on the right. The really nice thing about the gardening project, is…..I made already many dishes with fresh vegetables straight from the garden.And wow it taste so much better, better then a supermarket.
Everytime I learn more and more, I discover much about weed. That a lot of weed is still delicious for dinner, like elder, salt bush (Atriplex) en lady’s thumb (Persicaria maculosa), wild garlic (Allium ursinum). There is so much to discover in this world about plants and what you can eat or not.
Last i made a delicious pesto of a weed people really don’t like when they have it in the garden… I talk about elder, bishop’s weed. But the best way to get rid of the elder is to pi ck them and eat it. The taste has a little way of parsley.

The ingredients for a jar full of pesto

2 gloves of garlic
2 hands full of elder
2 tablespoons of pumpkin seeds
2 tablespoons of noble yeast flakes
8 tablespoons of olive oil
2 tablespoons of walnut oil
4 sun dried tomatoes (I used dried ones without oil, soak them in hot water for 10 minutes)

Kitchentools
a food processor

how to make
Again so easy, just get all the ingredients, wash the bishop’s weed, peel the garlic and so on. Put all the ingredients in the food processor and mix it till has a nice texture you like, a nice spread to put on your bread.
When it’s mixed get a jar and put it in a jar so you can close and safe it for longer time in the fridge. I don’t know exactly how long it will be eatable, but I always smell, look and taste it. But for sure 3 days after making it
Enjoy
