FOODIE FRIDAY - PESTO AND PEACHES

Don't worry - not together! I was going to call this post "Some Foodie Matters" but as it's just Friday in Sicily [00.04] I'll make it a "Foodie Friday" post.

My commenter Peter of italyMONDO - do click on the link to check out Peter's profile and blog as he has an interesting story - has asked me how last night's pesto turned out so I thought I'd show you.

I'm afraid I don't pestare my pesto. I just chuck everything in the food processor



and it always turns out all right. [The recipe is here.]



Today was market day and there were plenty of street traders selling fruit near the market site. For those of you who like to compare prices, here is what 3.50 euros bought me from one of them:



Not bad, eh?

More thanks, Welshcakes - that pesto recipe is just the thing!

Hi Welshcakes...Pesto looks good, I love it.

You should never put Bananas in a bowl with other fruit, it ripens the other fruit so quickly and makes them rot!!

Bananas give of a gas known as ethylene which is not good for other fruits,

Wow - that fruit is so perfect looking and gorgeous it hardly even looks real - great shot!

Thanks, Peter. Glad you like it. Thanks, chère Phidelm. Hi, Anne. Glad you're a pesto fan, too. I did know that about bananas and I put the peaches with them for the photo. I eat up apples so quickly that the bananas don't have time to affect them! Hi, Michelle. I am pleased that you like the shot.

How come your fruits and veggies looks so much better than what we have or get here...

Hi, pink. I'm surprised to learn that they do!
