Tips

  • How long do canned or bottled almonds last after opening? The precise answer to that question depends to a large extent on storage conditions - keep canned or bottled almonds in a cool, dry area.
  • To maximize the shelf life of canned or bottled almonds after opening, keep the container tightly sealed.
  • How long do canned or bottled almonds last at room temperature once opened? Properly stored, canned or bottled almonds will last for about 1 month at normal room temperature after opening.
  • Should you refrigerate canned or bottled almonds? To further extend the shelf life of canned or bottled almonds, keep them in the refrigerator.
  • How long do canned or bottled almonds last in the refrigerator once opened? Canned or bottled almonds will keep well for about 6 months in the refrigerator after opening.
  • Can you freeze canned or bottled almonds? Yes, freeze canned or bottled almonds in airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags.
  • How long do canned or bottled almonds last in the freezer? Properly stored, canned or bottled almonds will maintain best quality for about 12 months, but will remain safe beyond that time.
  • The freezer time shown is for best quality only - canned or bottled almonds that have been kept constantly frozen at 0°F will keep safe indefinitely.
  • Are canned or bottled almonds safe to use after the "expiration" date on the package? Yes, provided they are properly stored, the package is undamaged and there are no signs of spoilage (see below) - commercially packaged canned or bottled almonds will typically carry a "Best By," "Best if Used By," "Best Before," or "Best When Used By" date but this is not a safety date, it is the manufacturer's estimate of how long the canned or bottled almonds will remain at peak quality.
  • How to tell if canned or bottled almonds are bad or spoiled? The best way is to smell and look at the canned or bottled almonds: discard any that have an off smell or appearance; if mold appears, discard the canned or bottled almonds.
