Buying, Using, and Storing Pecans
To keep pecans fresh and flavorful, follow these buying and storage guidelines:
  • When buying pecans, look for plump pecans that are uniform in color and size.
  • Shelled pecans can be kept in the refrigerator for about nine months and for up to two years in the freezer.
  • Pecans can be thawed and refrozen repeatedly during the two-year freezing period without loss of flavor or texture.
  • Airtight containers, such as jars with lids, are best for storing pecans in the refrigerator.
  • Sealed plastic bags are best for storing pecans in the freezer. 
  • In-shell pecans can be stored in a cool, dry place for six to 12 months.
  • After removal from cold storage, pecans will stay good for an additional two months.
