How to store walnuts...


The walnut grove in Mia Bella Gardens is having a well earned winter rest...
 And this year there's been a bumper crop of nuts.
 Keeping nuts fresh for any length of time is always difficult, 
because more often than not they will turn rancid and become inedible .
 I love to have walnuts readily available for baking,
 so I thought I would share how I store them.
 I find the easiest way is to freeze them.
And all I do is put the shelled nuts into small freezer bags, and pop them in the freezer.

Then you pull out the quantity needed. Thaw then use. 
Freezer life of the walnuts is one year.
