  • CAN YOU FREEZE WALNUTS?
    I bought a large bag of walnuts, from Cost Co and am left with so many.

    Can I freeze them without altering their taste or texture?

    Thanks

    Yes you can. I keep all kinds in the freezer so they don't get rancid.

    What is the shelf life for those walnuts if they weren't put in the freezer right away?

    Will I be able to tell by smell?

    I have two walnut trees, every fall I shell all my walnuts (a HUGE job), then freeze for baking until the next harvest. Linda

    Storing
    Because walnuts contain oil, they easily turn rancid. Exposure to light, moisture or heat will reduce their shelf-life. Shelled walnuts will stay fresh in their original sealed bag or tin for an extended length of time. Once opened, they should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. For long-term storage, freeze shelled walnuts in airtight plastic bags or freezer containers. Walnuts thaw quickly at room temperature. Walnuts in the shell should be stored in a cool, dry place. Either shell the walnuts just before using, or shell and store them as directed above.

    Walnut oil should be stored in a cool, dark place for up to 3 months. To prevent rancidity, refrigeration is best.
