L.A. Times Test Kitchen tips: Freeze

Freezerdoor Freezerinterior Behold, the freezer at the L.A. Times Test Kitchen. With our cover story this week on Old World Breads, I thought it'd be a great time to share a tip on storing any excess seeds, nuts and flours.

Freeze them.

Because of their high fat content, many seeds and nuts, and flours, can go rancid quickly, especially at room temperature. Freezing them makes them last longer. And when you test the volume of recipes we do, that can come in handy.
