I fell in love with Kurt’s recipe back in the summer of 2002. Kurt is baking bread at the Orchard Hill Breadworks in VT. He swings by from time to time bearing the gift of whole grain loaves baked the old-fashioned way.
Kurt writes, “One time Adam asked the Gaia Herb rep what the best herb for general health was. The rep said basil and explained to us that it was the best overall tonic for the body. Pecans in this recipe add healthy fatty acids to the mix, and of course there are all those benefits that come from fresh garlic. If raw olive oil (like Bariani olive oil, which we carry) is used, this pesto can be a 100% raw recipe. Could this be the healthiest recipe ever at Debra’s Natural Gourmet?
