Ask Mary: Storing Pecans

Dear Mary,
What is the best way to store pecans? When I buy them they seem to go bad so quickly.
Thanks, Faye

Great question. Even though nuts are a dried good, it is best if you keep them in the refrigerator. They are very perishable. This actually goes for all nuts. The heat is really tough on them and you will find that if you keep them on your shelf you will be throwing them out sooner than you have to.

Happy Cooking!
