Tips for storing foods:
If you're not going to eat it fast, you can keep it in the freezer for 3months.
It can get as hards as a rock. Store it in an airtight container to keep moisture in.
It can go rancid. Wrap and freeze what you don't use.
Wrap in wax paper and place in an airtight plastic bag to keep fresh.
Keep in opaque or dark containers and keep in a cool dark place.
Crackers and chips can get soggy if not sufficiently protected from humidity. Use a chip clip or airtight container to keep them fresh.
Whole Wheat Flour:
Unlike white flour, wheat flour contains higher levels of fat that gives it a brief shelf life. It will last 6 months in the fridge.
