How to Store Nuts
Nuts have a high oil content that can become rancid quickly and will ruin any dish that they are used in. Store shelled nuts in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 months. For longer storage, place shelled nuts in a freezer-weight resealable plastic bag and store in the freezer for up to 6 months. Do not chop nuts before storing; nuts stay fresh longer when stored in larger pieces.
How to Store
Keep frosted cupcakes refrigerated.
