Storage Handling:
 

Short-term storage recommendation (7 days or less)

  • 32-36° F/0-2° C
  • 90-98% relative humidity (if nuts are packaged in moisture-proof containers)

    NOTE: Reduce relative humidity to 60-65% for bulk nuts.

Shelf-Life:
30 days.
Troubleshooting:

If stored in a warm area, nuts may exhibit loss of flavor/texture, shriveling, moisture loss, or mold.

High humidity can result in mold or rancid flavor; store properly.

Usage Ideas:

  • Sauté green beans, chopped yellow bell peppers, and toasted nuts; deglaze with ginger-soy sauce.
