      I just made my first ever batch of frozen pesto. i used walnuts as that is what I had. u have yet to eat it, but I did take it out of the freezer to look at it. Mine also seemed a bit runny, but from another review, I suppose I am good. i cannot wait to make pesto and linguini. 2nd batch will be made tomorrow as my basil is going crazy! love it.

      This is an excellent recipe!!!<br/><br/>The only thing that I do differently is that I vacuum seal the sauce in pint jars and than freeze it. I grow my own Basil and Garlic and use this Pesto for just about everything. I have a Weston Heavy Duty Vacuum sealer and use a Food Saver Ball Jar cap device. And yes you can reseal the pint can after you thaw it out in your fridge.
