Ain’t No Stoppin Us Now….We’re on the move!

Ain’t No Stoppin Us Now….We’ve got the groove!

That’s right folks, many of you are already getting ready to pack up and start traveling for the Christmas so I thought I would share another super fast homemade gift idea.

I pinky promise that all you need to do it pick up the ingredients, toss them in your food processor or mini-chopper and place the resulting pesto into a nice container.

The super sweet part is that this pesto tastes different than the run of the mill version so it will make pesto lovers from the former haters.

Consider using this pesto as a spread on pizza, chicken, pasta and more!

Does this need to be refrigerated or can it be mailed to the gift recipient?

Thanks!

Hi Maryann,
I would keep it refrigerated.

Do you know how long this will keep in the fridge?

I seem to recall using mine for 2 weeks or so and it was still great.
