That's when our mustard/almond pesto came to be and freezing it in glass jars has worked wonderfully. I guess the olive oil helps to keep it in "like new" condition when it thaws out. We will certainly do that again next year. The mustard is making seeds right now so I'm leaving it alone until those pods are nearly ready to open.
