Buddhapesto

It's the color of Summer.

Oh, Buddahpesto, you king of local pestos, how we love you so -- let us count the ways.

No, really. We've actually counted them.

1. The depth of flavor
We love how rich and round this pesto tastes. It's almost a little cheesy.

2. The parsley
All that rich cheese and olive oil need a little something to pick them up. And the parsley seems to do that nicely. We're not sure we'd ever know it was in there without looking at the ingredients, but we're sure we'd miss it if it wasn't.

3. The color
It's so vividly green. It looks like summer. We get happy just seeing it on a slice of bread.

Get a baguette, some nice cheese, a few good olives, a bottle of wine and a container of Buddhapesto and you have a great, easy summer snack/lunch/light dinner.

Buddhapesto is available directly from the source at the Troy Farmers Market. We've found it tends to be a little cheaper at Eats, though. (Eats is no more.) It's also available at the Honest Weight Food Co-op.

Also available at the Honest Weight Food Coop.

You can also find it at the Honest Weight Food Co-op. It's a wonderful pesto!

always suprises me how many people buy pesto when it is so easy to make at home...can be frozen or has a long shelf life in the fridge...that said...yes Buddhapesto is excellent....and I love to support the locals.

I discovered Buddahpesto at the Troy Farmer's Market and decided to include it in gift baskets at Christmas.... now my parents are addicted to it. And now, I serve as their pesto hook up.

to llcwine....Yes, it's easy to make pesto. I grow basil, etc. each year to make it...but, it's not so easy to make *good* pesto! Buddhapesto and also, the pesto made at Via Fresca (across from Crossgates) are excellent.

I feel that when people don't confront inappropriate behavior it sends a signal that it is tolerated. I often speak up in situations like these, depending on my reading of the situation. If we consider ourselves part of a community we all have a role to play in signaling what is and isn't appropriate behavior.
