Tasty Tip: Freeze Nuts

Tasty Tip: Freeze Nuts

Nutritious and delicious, nuts are perfect alone or in a wide variety of dishes. But thanks to their high oil content, they’re also especially prone to going rancid.
For longer-term storage, freeze nuts — they’ll stay fresher much longer. A few pointers:
     Nuts in the shell will usually last longer than shelled nuts.
     To freeze nuts, place in an airtight container or heavy-duty freezer bag.
     Some freezer storage times for nuts that have been shelled:
Pine Nuts: 6 Months
Macadamia Nuts: 9 Months
Almonds : 1 Year
Brazil Nuts : 1 Year
Cashews : 1 Year
Pistachios: 1 Year
Walnuts : 1 Year
Pecans: 2 Years
Check the Keep It or Toss It database to find detailed storage times for more types of nuts.
