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 12 months.

Multiple use mixture for baking, stores well, and always ready.


  • large handful of nut pieces, walnuts or pecans
  • small handful of diced dates, prunes, dried apricots
  • small handful of raisins, dried cranberries, blueberries
  • 2 Tbsp. cinnamon (or more if you really like it)
  • 1 tsp. ginger, allspice, nutmeg, coriander, or mace ( whatever you prefer)
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar or a dollop of honey (optional)


Mix together well and keep refrigerated in covered container.

Sprinkle on top of oatmeal, put inside acorn squash, or fill center of baked apples.
