  • If not using the pesto immediately, you can store it in sterilised jars in the fridge or a cool, dark pantry. Top the pesto with a centimetre of oil and it should keep for about two weeks. The pesto can react with metal lids so try to use Kilner jars if possible.
  • Make sure to wash your wild garlic thoroughly before making pesto.
