Storing Pesto without Freezing

marcharry | Aug 30, 2009 08:52 AM

I made pesto cheese and all. Boiled up some canning jars and lids. Filled the jars and eliminated air pockets wherever possible. I then topped off the jars with olive oil to 'seal' out air and closed them.

My plan is to cellar them, not freeze them.

Will this work to preserve the contents? More importantly, am i creating a health risk?!
