Storing home made pesto?

Recommended Posts

I'm all set to have a go at my first batch of home made pesto, all ingredients ready but no recipe tells me how to store it. Do you keep it in an airtight container in the fridge or can you freeze it or both?

Need a quick response as the basil leaves are drooping in the heat by the minuite!!!

Our local Italian deli owner makes her own pesto (the best and greenest I've ever eaten) and sells it frozen in small jars.  It keeps well, frozen. for at least a month. Ice cubes are a great idea if you don't know how much you'll need at a time.
