How to Store Nuts and Dried Fruits

Nuts and dried fruits are a great source of protein for those following a plant-based, vegan or vegetarian diet. They provide a unique flavor to many meals helping us whip up a delicious healthy treat in no time. So with that in mind, read on to see how to keep those healthy nibbles fresher for longer.
They’re also a great food to take with you if you need to keep your energy levels up when you’re on the go.
Nuts are best stored out of direct light and heat therefore, it is essential to find a cool, dark place to store them. 
Storing them in an airtight completely sealed container, preferable glass, will help keep them fresher for longer. 
Nuts could also be stored in the fridge as opposed to at room temperature, this is especially true for people living in hot, humid climates or during the hotter summer months. Again, when storing them in the refrigerator it is still always best to use airtight glass containers.  Plastic bags, as well as not being the most sustainable option, can also absorb the flavors of other foods,  something that none of us like!
Store nuts and dried fruit in the freezer!
If you’re someone who likes to buy in bulk or know that you’re not going to use the ingredients straight away, did you know you can keep nuts and dried fruits in the freezer! In fact, dried fruit keeps very well in the freezer and can last up to 12 months when stored properly. Nuts on the other hand vary depending on the nut.
Quick tips for storing nuts and dried fruits.
Keep them away from other strong flavored foods such as onions and garlic, as they can absorb their flavors.
Remember, these are just guidelines as many factors including the weather of where you live have also an impact on the shelf life of nuts and dried fruits.
