Can nuts be frozen?

My sister gave me a gigantic bag of walnuts. I have a food vacuum sealer and was wondering: if I seal them, how long will they stay fresh in my pantry, or should I freeze them?

By all means freeze them. It's the best place to keep them. I put them in ziplock bags and freeze--no need to defrost, either. You can just take what you need from the bag and use frozen in pretty much everything. They'll keep a long time frozen and won't go rancid. I've kept nuts for up to a year with no discernible loss of quality--as long as they were well-sealed.

Ditto to the above post. They will last longer if frozen.

RE: Can nuts be frozen?

The manufacturer actually suggest you freeze the nuts, because of their high fat content. If you don't, as the previous post mentioned, they will go rancid.
