Homemade Holiday Gifts that Travel

TheMasticator | Dec 15, 2012 09:26 AM

I'm sending a box of some homemade food gifts to the in-laws this year, but have a couple questions about what can travel without refrigeration.
1) Homemade pasta: If I make fresh cavatelli or linguine, can I just dry it out, package it up and send it? I'm sure it will be fine, but sometimes fresh pasta is in the cold section of the store...
2) Artichoke Lemon Pesto: I know the cheese in here should be refrigerated, but sometimes I see sealed jars of this stuff on the shelves in markets. What's the difference? Will five nights in a box really spoil it?
Not trying to poison the in-laws...
