Save the Pecans! Store them to last.
That’s right – you don’t want to risk losing a single one of those tasty pecans. So, to keep them in tip top shape, store them in a freezer-safe bag or container in the freezer. We’ve been told they can stay as long as two years in the freezer, but don’t push your luck! Once you take them out to thaw, the ideal timeline is to use them within two months.
They can also be stored in the fridge in sealed container. That will keep for nine months, but if you keep them shelled, they can last six to 12 months. The key is making sure they are in a container that keeps the moisture out.
