Storing Pecans
« on: January 14, 2013, 09:09:05 AM »
I bought some unshelled pecans and would like to store them for future use. I don't want to shell them just store them like this. My thought was to put a couple of pounds in a bag, vac seal them and store in my freezer. What do you guys think of this idea?

Shelled and frozen is the best way.  Frozen is next best.

I'm with LeeB & MM, shelled and frozen.  I'll use them all year long from the freezer till I run out.  I let them dry out shelled for a couple of months before freezing.  I harvest, shell, use for Christmas cooking.  I had two gallons for the freezer first of this month.
