Preparation of the caper pesto

  1. First take the capers, put them in a bowl with cold water to remove the salt . Leave the capers to soak for at least an hour. Drain the capers and pat them dry quickly with kitchen paper.
  2. Clean the garlic, peel it and put it directly in the bowl of the mixer, add the clean basil, the almonds and the anchovy fillets. If you want to give an extra touch of color to your pesto you can also add dried tomatoes.
  3. Soak some dried tomatoes (it will take about 2-3 ) in cold water for 10-15 minutes . After this time, drain the dried tomatoes well from the water, squeeze them and add them to the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Start blending everything by adding the oil slowly. Continue to blend until you have obtained a creamy pesto. Use the pesto immediately to season the pasta or place it in special glass jars.


The pesto prepared in this way can be stored in sterilized glass jars tightly closed with lids and covered with a little oil in the refrigerator for 2-3 days .
