Wild-mushroom-and-basil pesto

Wild oyster mushrooms

I always mean to work a bit harder on getting my homegrown mushroom production perfected so we can pick mushrooms whenever we want.  The trouble is that the woods Mushroom pestochurn out high-quality oyster mushrooms with such regularity that I have little incentive to get my act together. 

It's hard to complain, though, when the box-elder by the barn provides the main ingredient for wild-mushroom-and-basil pesto for lunch, then for mushroom green beans for supper.  Delicious!
