  1. If your pesto comes out bitter, try using avocado oil instead. When I blend olive oil it gets a bitter taste.
    Also, if you have the time/patience, blanching the basil and shocking it in ice water after will make it so it keeps its vibrant green color.

    Hello, Just a note for those of you who can’t eat dairy. Instead of parmesan cheese use nutritional yeast. :-)

      Hi. I freeze pesto often during the summer. The texture may change a little but it works well.
