Pesto Blend Herb Cooking Mix, dry, no salt, gluten free, basil, garlic
Hand-blended, perfectly-crafted Pesto blend Herb Mix with sun-dried tomatoes
From the Backyard Patch Herbs
(A Salt-free, Gluten-free Blend)
Pesto Herb Blend with Sun Dried Tomatoes - A great basil-rich mixture for olive oil that can be tossed with pasta or used on bread. Perfect in winter when fresh basil is scarce! Contains basil, garlic, parsley and real sun-dried tomatoes.
Like all blends from the Backyard Patch I guarantee an 18 to 24 month shelf-life, because I use only the freshest ingredients. I raise all Backyard Patch herbs organically and my mixes are chemical and pesticide free.
This mix comes in zip seal pouch for easy storage and contains enough to make several recipes.
Try this special recipe with this blend:
Enhanced Pesto Sauce
1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup pine nuts
1 pkg. Backyard Patch Pesto Blend
1 Tbls Lemon Juice
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. kosher salt
Combine Pesto Blend with lemon juice and let soak for 5 minutes. Add re-hydrated Pesto Blend, olive oil and pine nuts to blender (or food processor) and blend until it forms a paste, stopping as often as needed to push down ingredients. Add in Parmesan cheese and salt, blend until smooth. Transfer to bowl and serve tossed with pasta or as a bread spread.
I make 42 different "Dip Mixes" which actually make much more than dips, some make a dressing, a rub, or cheese spread. Recipes and tips for using the blend are included. These are packaged in a zip seal pouch with decorative labeling.
Because I grow and blend the herbs myself I can assure you no preservatives or pesticides have been used. I can also guarantee that these blends will hold up to storage for at least 18 months and still provide a flavorful item.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask and if you want this or another blend made without certain ingredients, please ask as I can accommodate food sensitivities.

At the Backyard Patch I craft blends of home-grown herbs to use in cooking and entertaining. Each mix comes in a zip seal pouch for easy storage along with tips, instructions and easy-to-follow recipes for creating herb-flavored delights. Although each was originally crafted to make a particular item, years of experimentation by customers and family has resulted in extra recipes and variations which are included with each mix.
Like all blends from the Backyard Patch we guarantee an 18 to 24 month shelf-life, because we hand-blend only the freshest herbs. All Backyard Patch herbs are raised organically and are chemical and pesticide free.
Although the weights vary each package contains three (3) tablespoons of the blend which in most cases is enough to make at least two recipes.
I have sets and samplers of these blends too, just check out our cooking herbs here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/BackyardPatch?section_id=7417786
