How do I store nuts?

Rating: 100

Nuts in a shell should be stored in a tightly lidded plastic, metal, or glass container at a temperature of 70 degrees F or colder. Plastic bags can be used but are not insect and rodent proof. If nuts are stored at a higher temperature, the nuts might turn rancid. They can also be stored in the refrigerator or the freezer. Shelled nuts can be stored in a tightly lidded plastic or glass container or heavy plastic bag in the refrigerator or freezer. Package tightly so they do not absorb odors and flavors from other foods. If stored at room temperature, they will keep for about one to two months.
