Can I make basil pesto and freeze it? Has anyone tried oregano or thyme pesto---or is it too cumbersome and strong?

what is the least amount of time that this step can be done? is over night mandatory? if so why? thanks!

Thanks Mrathmel...I am not sure what happened here! I was looking for an answer to one of the recipes I am testing about pancake batter! I too do exactly the same as you with pesto in the freezer! :)

I make & freeze pesto all the time. Put in ice cube trays, when frozen, store in freezer bag. I throw a "cube" or 2 in homemade soups (especially chicken) and stews. Yum!
