    I just finished making a new batch of birdy bread.I was going to sprinkle pinenuts along the top but remembered they have been in the refrigerator for 4 months so not sure they are still good to use.(I left them out of the bread)I am just wondering how long pinenuts,almonds and pistachios stay good?I've kept them in the refrigerator.With just one bird he doesn't go through a ton fast.

    I only buy pinenuts in small amounts, 50gm packets at a time and keep them in the fridge too. I would think 6 mths would be OK, but I chuck out any off coloured ones and smell them, if they smell off..rancid, throw them out. With nuts a lot depends on how they were picked, when, how they were handled, stored before we got them. So they store differently. Don't know but I think other nuts would be the same.

    :omg: I'm soo glad I read this thread... I've had almonds sitting out for 4 months on my counter and didn't know they even needed to be refrigerated... :eek: Will get rid of them when I get home.. And I just bought walnuts over the weekend so I will put them in the refrigerataor so they don't go bad so fast..
