1. Don't see why not!

Start with a small container, overnight freeze it. Thaw, see how it is.
I freeze lots of stuff. try to remove as much air as you can from the container you
pack it up in. I would suggest some kinda air sucking out baggie. Like Reynolds Handi-Vac bags
If not available use a sandwich baggie, fill a little, force the air out and freeze.
This is how I keep my Abobo sauce ready to go at a minutes notice.
If it works with Tahini, place in measured baggies so you know how much is in the bag.

Good luck!!

2. I'm pretty sure the answer is yes.

I seem to recall it separates a bit, clear liquid comes off, you just stir it back together and you're good to go.

3. Pesto freezes.

Pretty much the same concept, I would think.

4. Why would you want to freeze it? It lasts almost forever in the fridge.

6. Mine gets mold on it within a month

no matter which brand I used. My fridge is set @ 35 degrees F. I tried a new brand, Joyva, but it comes in a big quanitity, and I don't want to see it go to waste.

5. I think so, but you will likely need to beat it with a whisk

once it defrosts. I can see the oil separating out of it as it thaws.

However, the overall quality wouldn't be affected by freezing since everything is already ground or pureed.
