Feelin' Nutty? Pecan Practicality

Pecans are packed with antioxidants and bone-strengthening magnesium, plus they are a good source of heart-healthy unsaturated fat.

So how do you get the best of batch?  Here's what to look for and how to store them:
  • Shelled pecans should look plump and be uniform in color and size.
  • Unshelled nuts should feel heavy and be blemish-free.
  • Avoid those that rattle, it is an indication of age.
  • Pecans spoil fast, so store them in the fridge for up to 9 months or in the freezer for up to 2 years.
  • They can be stored at room temperature for about 3 months.
  • Best of all?  You can thaw and refreeze pecans without affecting the quality.
