Dietitians and nutritionists are adamant that walnuts are among the most healthy nuts for the body. They supply it with the necessary Omega 3 unsaturated fatty acids, as well as the minerals necessary for its proper functioning, such as manganese, magnesium, potassium and others.
But along with all the useful components in them, walnuts also contain a lot of fat. If walnuts are not stored properly, the fats change their taste and give the otherwise healthy nuts an unpleasant and bitter taste.
Therefore, the first task is to protect walnuts from the effects of the environment, in particular to protect them from very high a temperatures or free access of air.
We recommend that you store the walnuts in a thick plastic bag and in a dark place, with a maximum storage time of about 3 months.
In case you want to store walnuts for a longer period of time, it is best to store them in iron, clay or even glass containers with a tight lid that stops the access of air.
Culinary experts recommend that walnuts are stored in an airtight container in the freezer. This way, they not only retain their taste, but also their antioxidant properties for more than 8 months.
Therefore, if you can't imagine a Good Baklava without walnuts, then be sure to listen to our advice.
