How do you store nuts?

Nuts contain high amounts of oil, meaning they can go bad pretty quickly if not stored properly. Shelled nuts will keep for up to a year if stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They'll keep 2 years or longer stored the same way in the freezer. Unshelled nuts will last you up to 6 months if stored in a cool, dark, dry place. If you have a can of vacuum-packed nuts, store them at room temperature.
