    I have heard something like 3 months at room temp, 6 months in the fridge, a year in the freezer. I keep mine in the freezer just to be safe.

    Frozen macadamias are yum

    what kind of nuts are you "opening"? canned mixed-nut brands, like planters and emeralds, almost always have been roasted with some sort of horrendous oil. I go for the unroasted bulk variety.

    Raw brazilnuts, almonds, macadamias, pistachios, hazelnuts...

    I never thought about freezing them but I think I will have to do just that!

    Speaking of nuts....i have a love hate relationship with them. I was downing brazil nuts until i realized you can overdose on selenium and they are high in aflatoxins. So...i've switched to hazelnuts which are a local product of my region of italy and just delicious. I eat about a handful per day, with my morning fruit and cocnut oil. ( i have noticed an egg sensitivity lately, so have had ot remove them. i also removed dairy) But i still wonder about Aflatoxins and thier danger for our livers. Anyone got any info on that?

    Just be very careful with walnuts because they go rancid almost instantly because of their high levels of Omega 3 fatty acids. They need to be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer. Do not eat walnuts that have been sitting in a non-airtight container. Rancid nuts wreak havoc on your cells because they release free radicals. You can also soak the walnuts overnight in water and then dehydrate them the next day for about 10 hours at 150 degrees. They taste delicious and the soaking and dehydrating removes phytic acid, making the nuts digestible and the vitamins they provide bioavailable.

    I pass on walnuts since they have 10 g of omega 6 in 1 oz.
