I use a lot of nuts for baking. I discovered if I chopped the whole bag of nuts at once and store in a clean coffee container, it saves a lot of time when baking.

Store shelled nuts in the refrigerator on the upper shelf
will last about a year. Frozen walnuts will be good up to two years.
If shelling your own, remove the papery section that is between
the two halves-it's bitter.
Pecans absorb odors from food--store in airtight containers.
Shelled pecans will last about 9 months in the refrigerator and up to
2 years frozen. You can also use them and refreeze without losing
taste. In the shell they will keep in a cool, dry location for six to
Multiple use mixture for baking, stores well, and always ready.
