This was one of the several varieties I made this summer when my basil plants were overproducing. The unique flavors pushed this to the top of my favorite list. I froze several batches in 1/2 pt containers and simply thaw as I need them. One of the uses for this pesto so far has been as a topper for pork sandwiches. The subtle hint of sweet is a great compliment.

My husband I would eat this pesto with a spoon, it was so delicious!
