Chadwick Cherry Heirloom Tomato Pesto

About 5 years ago my husband Scott bought these Chadwick seeds from “Baker Creek Seeds”, and saved some from the super crop. They really produce, and we’re still using the same saved seeds! We like to dry some of the extra tomatoes. I was putting some away a couple of days ago, and noticed we still had a jar from a year ago. That’s when I thought of this recipe, it was so good I’ll be making it again soon, well maybe not until the fresh ones are gone.

Tomato Pesto

  • 1-1/2 to 2 Cups dry Tomatoes
  • 1/2 to 3/4 Cups Sprouted Chandler Walnuts
  • 1/2 to 3/4 Cups dry cheese, (I use local “Fiscalini Farmstead Cheese or Vella Dry Monterey Jack)
  • 1/3 to 1/2 Cup Good Olive Oil
  • 2 to 3 Cloves Garlic
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon unrefined sea salt I use http://realsalt.com/
  • 1 to 1&1/2 Teaspoons fresh Ground Black Pepper

Combine all ingredients in a food processor, taste and add a bit more of what ever, to your liking. We enjoyed this over grilled zucchini fresh from the garden, but it would be great over pasta, as a sauce on pizza, in a sandwich, with eggs, mixed with home-made mayonnaise and cream for dressing, the list could be endless, I’ll leave it to your imagination. Enjoy

The 1st leaves are dried stevia, from my herb garden. stevia is much sweeter than sugars, and zero calories, plus it has other benefits. It’s easy to grow and gets big. Like all foods it’s much better not processed, refined, and bleached. You can crumble the leaves up by hand, use a spice (coffee) grinder, or mortar and pestle, or even leave them whole, and they don’t need to be dried. 2nd are star anise, talk about aroma therapy, the fragrance is incredible, these I bought in the Mexican section at the grocery store, along with whole cinnamon, both cheep. Break every thing up, and be careful not to use too much stevia a little goes a long way! Seep in hot water, at least 10 minutes, or longer. I let mine cool some and added more water to make a full pitcher, the peppermint from my front yard goes good with it. You could make up all kinds of blends, there’s no limit, make notes, so you can do it again, or not depending how they turn out. Enjoy
