Pesto Powder Is The Secret Ingredient You Need On Everything

Pesto people, it’s time you know about powdered pesto. It’s true, making your own pesto is a fun and delicious project. It’s an easy, healthy and bold ingredient for just about anything. The only downside to fresh pesto is its shelf life. Before you know it, fresh pesto can start to smell funky and all of those pricey pine nuts go down the drain. If you’ve never heard of pesto powder, we’ve got good news for you.

Italian pesto powder is a secret weapon among chefs around the world. You can add it to pasta, pizza and dressing. Sprinkle it on top of anything that needs a boost of basil flavor. Chances are, you’ll be the only person you know with this magical ingredient in their spice cabinet.

Since it’s freeze-dried, the pesto has a shelf life that’ll outlive any of your fresh pesto, and the flavor is more powerful. Pesto powder is freeze-dried with Genovese basil, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, pine seeds, POD Fiore Sardo (sheep milk, rennet, salt) and garlic.

You can find the gourmet pesto powder on Amazon for $40. We know, it’s steep, but one small jar will add an unrivaled punch of heirloom basil flavor to all of your recipes.
