1. Use Airtight Containers

Storing your nuts in airtight containers can prevent contact with moisture, oxygen, and light, all of which can make them spoil faster. Glass containers with sealable lids are excellent options.

2. Keep 'Em Cool

Cashews and almonds should ideally be stored in cool environments. If you live in a warm climate or you won’t consume your stock quickly, consider storing them in the refrigerator (up to 6 months) or the freezer (up to a year). 

3. Avoid Mixing

It's best to store different types of nuts separately. This practice prevents the flavors from merging and extends their shelf life.

4. Away from Strong Odors

Nuts can absorb the smell of other food items around them. Make sure you store them away from strong-smelling items like spices or onions.

5. Buy in Bulk, Store in Portions

If you buy in large quantities, consider storing in smaller, portion-sized packs. This way, every time you want some, you won’t expose the entire batch to air and light.

6. Check and Rotate

Regularly check your nut stock for any signs of spoilage like mold or foul smell. Use the older stock first before opening a new pack to avoid unnecessary waste.

Correct storage of cashews and almonds retains their delightful taste, texture, and prolongs their usage. Implement these tips and enjoy the crunch and health benefits of these nutritious powerhouses, every time you reach out for a handful! Now that's worth going nuts about.
