Portion control

I like to purchase pesto from Costco. It's a great price and really delicious. The down side, not surprisingly, is the size of the package. To get around that, I like to use it like crazy for a few weeks and then freeze the rest in reasonably sized portions. An ice cube tray is perfect for this! Each cube is about a tablespoon and after it freezes I just transfer it to a zip-loc bag or other freezer container. I used to make my own baby food using a similar method. Easy, thrifty, practical. (Like music to my ears!)

I would recommend using a separate tray for this purpose though or your ice cubes may end up with a slight garlic-y taste.
