Since we posted a recipe that we said you could include nuts like walnuts and pecans into I thought I'd add this little tidbit fact.
I keep all of my nuts in my refrigerator.
Why? Well because nuts contain oils and oils can go rancid. So to extend the shelf life of my nuts I keep them in the fridge. They keep much longer that way and seem to have a crisper texture when eating them right from the fridge.
I keep all nuts on hand all the time, almonds, walnuts, pecans, peanuts. So that I can either put them in salads and recipes or just eat a hand full if I need a snack.
If you buy them in bulk at the wholesale places like Costco, Sam's and BJ's they can be really a great buy.
