Friday's Tip

I see that Blogger fixed their problem and all of the posts are back up.  Here is the tip that I tried to post earlier.

NUTS!

Often people tell me that when the use nuts in cooking that they do not get the results they expected.  The flavor is just not there. Or it is off or even rancid.  All nuts have a high level of oils in them.  If you buy a lot of whole nuts or shelled pieces, they can go bad.  You should always store your nutmeats in the freezer. They will stay fresh for months.  Be sure and write the date purchased and what kind of nuts are in the container.  When you are ready to use them, bring them up to temperature by roasting in a dry pan over medium heat. Be careful not burn them. Let them cool and then dice them or whatever the recipe calls for.
