Expiration & Storage Tips
When does raw cashews expire?
Unopened bags of raw cashews have a long shelf life and can last for up to 6 months in the pantry and about a year in the fridge. If you open the bag, but still keep the nuts in the fridge, you can expect them to be good for up to 4 months. If you freeze raw cashews in an airtight container or bag, they can last for up to 2 years.
How do you tell if raw cashews is bad?
Signs that your raw cashews have gone bad can include changes in color to a darker shade, or a rancid smell when you open the bag. Raw cashews should have a pleasant, sweet, nutty aroma. If they smell like old oil, or they have a slimy or moldy texture, they are past their prime and should be discarded.
Tips for storing raw cashews to extend shelf life
• Always store raw cashews in a cool, dry place with a constant temperature. • An airtight container is ideal to prevent the cashews from absorbing any odors and to keep them fresh. • If you're going to keep cashews in the pantry, it's best to consume them within 2 months. • Storing cashews in the refrigerator or freezer can extend their shelf life enormously. Just make sure they're in a sealed container to prevent them from absorbing odors. • Consider portioning larger quantities of cashews into smaller, ready-to-use packets before freezing. This way, you only defrost what you need, helping to maintain their freshness.
