  • Would my nuts smell if they were rancid?

    Cleaning out my pantry I discovered a couple bags of sliced almonds I didn't know I had - how will I know if they're bad?  Will they be stinky?Hmm

    They will smell like ranic oil.

    If not too bad you can salvage them by putting into boiling (at a low simmer)  milk for a few minutes, drain, rinse and dry and then toast them a little bit.

    It is best to keep nuts inthe freezer until you use them.

    Smelling rancid nut and seed oils gives me a massive headache, so I'm pretty quite to throw out suspicious nuts or sesame seeds.  But I know this is a particular quirk of mine.

    So what?  Big deal.

    Well if they've been in the pantry for 3 years too long...they're gonna smell mighty gnarly....if they are only like 3months old it won't be so bad.  I love tossing them outside for the deer & the birds!

    With the price of nuts I can understand not wanting to waste, but not wanting to smell 'em either!!

    Good luck!!

    So - one bag - the larger of the two smells like nothing.  The other bag smells old but not icky - I'm giving that one to the birds.

    I tend to think they get an oily, gritty look as well. Good luck smelling your nuts. LOL!
