Homemade Pesto

The other day, I had bought a lil box of basil to use in my fav "Amalfi Baked Lemons" but I had a whole bunch leftover, so I decided to try making some pesto. As I didn't have a food processor, I made it the old-fashioned way ... using a pestle and mortar ...

First, I crunched up the pecans (instead of the traditional pine nuts) ...

And after doing the same to the basil and adding some garlic and a whole lot of olive oil, voila! My Pesto Sauce!
