At Pesto Princess we destalk the basil by hand and only use the soft leaves to produce a creamy sauce. We peel our own garlic, and grate our own cheese, so that we can guarantee there are no nasties in your product. We buy our herbs from small scale farmers wherever possible, who use organic sprays for pest control, and farm sustainably. We love local, and for that reason have ditched the pine nut in favour of cashews and almonds which are grown closer to home. We use glass jars since they are the best keeper of food products and can be recycled.
