DIRECTIONS

  • Pound the basil, garlic, salt and pine nuts together in the mortar until they are a paste. Start by grinding the mass against the sides of the mortar, using a twisting motion of the pestle. Once everything has been reduced to a paste, you can start pounding.
  • Slowly add the cheeses, about a tablespoon at a time, continuing to pound.
  • Once the cheeses are fully incorporated, scrape it into a bowl and begin slowly adding the olive oil, stirring constantly.
  • Transfer any leftovers into a sealable jar, and float a thin layer of oil on top.
