Our green pesto sauces are thick and concentrated, so dilute them with 30 ml boiling water and 30 ml olive oil before adding to your dish.
Spoon pesto into ice cube trays, and once frozen, store in a ziplock bag, for portioning out as needed. The whole jar can also be stored in the freezer without cracking.
Keep our fresh pesto in the fridge. Always. If your fridge is not that cold, rather store in the freezer to prolong the shelf life.
Keep it clean
Always use a clean spoon when serving your pesto to avoid contamination.
Keep it green
Pesto naturally darkens when it comes into contact with oxygen, so you can cover with a little olive oil each time you use it. Rather than discard the darkened pesto, simply stir it into the rest of the jar, and it won’t be noticeable.
Your basil pesto is the best in the WORLD.
