    milliwuu's Note:

    This is a solid version of the Garlic Pesto Sauce for easier handling, storing, spreading, carrying and giving. Being a busy mom, I've made it saltier so it stores better, uses less per serving and thus lasts longer. It also freezes very well. I've forgotten a bottle in the freezer for over a year and it still tastes the same, with the same garlicky pungency, and has no freezer smell at all. When stored, the top layer will get a darker green which is perfectly alright. Besides spreading on bread, crackers, biscuits, bagels--it is also good for pasta, veggie dips, putting on fish and chicken, and is a brilliant touch up on many cream soups, adding to them a sophisticated flavor. (I have tried: tomato based vegetable soup, turmeric vegetable soup, pumpkin soup, cream of corn--please have fun experimenting!)
