Better Home Cooking Basics: #6 Keep Nuts in the Freezer
I always have nuts on hand for snacking, baking or pesto making. I store mine in the freezer. Since nuts have a high fat content, especially when exposed to heat they can go rancid quickly when exposed to light & heat. Last time I checked, nuts are always pretty spendy so I want to keep mine as long as possible. If you store them correctly, in an air tight container or bag, you can store them for up to a year! Don't forget to label them so it makes it easier to identify them when you're sorting through frozen mystery packages in your freezer.
