Nut storage & handling tips

Nuts in shell

For best quality, select clean nuts free from cracks and holes. Nuts in the shell should be heavy for their size, indicating a fresh kernel.

Nut kernels

Crisp, plump and meaty kernels indicate high quality. Unless you plan to use kernels as a garnish, they do not need to be uniform in size.

Once home, remove nuts from plastic bags and store them properly as indicated below.

How to store

To keep nuts in the best condition, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer. Nuts can be refrigerated up to 4 months and frozen up to 6 months.
