Storing Candied Nuts
You can store these delicious pecans in an airtight container on the counter at room temperature for up to 7 days.
If you don’t want to eat them all right away feel free to freeze them in an airtight container or sealable bag that you remove as much air as possible. The nuts can freeze for 3-4 months. Or use a vacuum seal system to extend the freezer life.
Thaw the nuts on the counter then enjoy. The pecans might be a bit softer in texture once thawed from being frozen. But, they will still taste great.
