Living rural growing up, I remember my grandmother making pesto but we didn't call it that. She called it pine dressing. I had no idea it was what others called pesto until I was a young adult. LOL We used it to mix with plain spaghetti or spread on sandwiches. Everyone had a bed of basil and garlic growing. We use to have to collect pine cones from certain pine trees and spend lots of times getting the nuts. It was very time consuming. But fun climbing the trees. No dropped one would do only the fresh picked off the tree. All the ingredients but the olive oil were free and back then kid time was spent being useful. I can't see a fat pine cone without wanting to gather up a lot.
