Additional Olive oil for creating an oxygen deprivation layer on top of the pesto
Pine seeds are hard to shell if someone doesn't have a pine sheller so consider buying shelled pine seeds instead of spending the afternoon gathering them in the woods. In case there isn't any pine seed available other nuts can be used just as well. Optionally breadcrumbs can be used too.
Roast the shelled pine seeds until golden brown in a pan on medium to high heat while stirring occasionally. It doesn't need any additional fat or oil.
Take the basil leaves off the stem, rinse them and place them into a food processor.
Put everything else into the food processor.
Puree until there is a consistent texture.
Taste and adjust accordingly.
Keep it in the fridge for about 2 weeks or until tastes edible.
