this pesto was a winner! It is made by rising sun foods in oregon. Vegan garlic galore pesto, it is called, and it has a great texture, thick with basil, and contains almonds, and no cheese. Worth the cost.....over five dollars for a small jar. I spread it on rice crackers......I shouldn't have, but ....could have been worse. http://www.risingsunfarms.com/pilot.asp?pg=default

That sounds wonderful and highly beneficial for an O non like myself. Thanks, Jayney. I absolutely love, love, love pesto sauce. It is SO expensive, though, and I keep thinking it is something I have no excuse not to make myself. I mean, I now possess:
1. A food processor 2. A mortar and pestal 3. A blender
Any one of the three should do the job, especially the good old mortar and pestal, from which "pesto" sauce takes it's name (seriously!).
I don't know why the grocery store doesn't sell big ole bags of basil, but they should. Maybe it doesn't keep well and it is better to grow your own and pick as needed *shrug*.
Anyway, that brand sounds great and I love that there is no dairy in it and that it uses almonds. Ummmmmmmmmm.

I bought a live basil plant @ wild oats HFS a few weeks ago for 4 $ it was hydroponicly grown- just put it in a glass of water and it keeps growing. it lasted a couple weeks before I killed it by leaving it in the sun.. they lady that sold it to me told me not to do that opps. still got a lot of use out of it.. I have tired that pesto before and it is excellent

I wonder if basil will grow inside my house? When we lived in CA, we planted a number of plants right below our bedroom window and the smell was heavenly! Here in CO at this elevation, the growing season is really short, and the deer would eat it if it wasn't fenced in...but an indoor plant sounds promising.
I'm taking my power back by remembering that a belief is only a thought that I keep thinking,
