How to store

Smoked pecans are a delicious snack that can be enjoyed year-round. To ensure they remain fresh and flavorful, it is important to know how to store these pecans properly. The good news is that storing smoked pecans is easy and straightforward.

All you need to do is find an airtight container, like a bag or jar, and place your pecans in it. Make sure the container is completely sealed to keep out moisture and other contaminants. Then, store the pecans in a cool, dark place like a pantry or cupboard. You can also store them in the refrigerator if you want to keep them for an extended period of time.

If you have already opened the package of smoked pecans, make sure you transfer them to an airtight container as soon as possible. This will help ensure that the pecans remain fresh and flavorful for as long as possible.

Additionally, you may want to consider adding a layer of wax paper between the smoked pecans and the lid of the container. This will help absorb any excess moisture that may be present in the container.

Finally, it is important to remember that smoked pecans are best enjoyed soon after they are opened, so try to consume them within a few weeks of opening the package.
