How Long Does Pesto Last
When you are using a homemade pesto recipe, it will usually stay good in the refrigerator for about a week. If you are using store bought bottled pesto, the unopened bottle of pesto will last about 3 weeks, when stored in the refrigerator. Once opened the pesto will last about 2 weeks. The opened bottle of pesto must be stored in the refrigerator. These times change when the pesto is not stored properly or when not kept in the refrigerator.
