Do pizza restaurants usually make their own pesto or use commercial acidified pesto? Found pesto squished between plates this morning (about 11 hours old) and concerned about a low-acid situation and how to clean it up safely. Or this this a non-issue even if not acidified?
I am sure this varies widely. Some restaurants make their own, while others purchase it already prepared. Whether or not it is acidified should have nothing to do with clean up. If you are at home, scrape off what you can, simply soak in warm, soapy dish water, and scrub clean. Alternately, use a dishwasher. In a restaurant, follow the wash and sanitize procedure.
