Pecans question

Question, I've told you ca freeze pecans but if you do then do you shell them first or can yu freeze the pecans in the shell?
which is the best?

This may be in the wrong spot and if you need to move it I do understand.

Bar Bar, lucky you! pecans are so precious up here and very pricey!

Here is a website that covers the bases. think there's another website called recipelink that might have some info too.

I have gotten pecans and frozen them in a paper bag in my freezer, they get a little soft, so I don't know if that is the best way to do it.

Storing and Freezing Pecans...

*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.

Thank you so much. Now I can feel a little better on knowing how to do them. As I hate for them to go bad, for pecans are high here and since I got them free from our tree I do want to make the most of them.
thanks again.

We have an old large Pecan Tree and we shell 1st then freeze in zip-lock bags or containers. We use them in bakin straight from freezer. Unshelled nuts we put in Orange/Grapefruit mesh bags and hang from porch rafters till we get 2 them. They keep for us for a yr without tasting pithy (sometimes 2).

They will be best if you shell them first, then put in ziploc bags and freeze.
You have a goldmine there ! I love pecans, too. Just roasted with a bit of oil and salt in the oven or make candied pecans or walnuts.
MMM, good !

thanks Linda Lou, wow, it great to see you posting girl. Hope you received my phone call For Christmas.

Today waS pretty, so I told the kids if they went out ot pick pecans I would give them a penny a piece for them.
Johnathan collected 75 cents worth
Chynna collected 1.16 worth
Hanna first time around collected 88 cent and then decided to go and get another sack which turned out to be 38 cents.

Still have quite a few on the ground... still need picking.

What a great Christmas present the shelled pecans would be.

I also freeze them for several years and haven't had a problem with them being nice.
