It’s all about fresh herbs on the farm these days. The herb fields are hearty and lush and I am busy harvesting. Fresh herbs can definitely take a recipe from good to great and infuse wonderful aromas and flavours into a dish.
This week’s farm to table recipe features fresh dill. This green herb, with a tangy flavour and feathery leafs, is commonly used when pickling, in stews, soups, fish dishes and potatoes. Not only have I created a simple and delicious pasta recipe with one of my favourite noodles that enhances its flavour, but this pesto sauce is very versatile. It can be served with fish, chicken, as a potato salad dressing and it also makes a delicious condiment on sandwiches and hamburgers.
This is not a conventional pesto recipe, however, I encourage you to give it a try!
