The benefits of fresher nuts and seeds are more health benefits, a longer shelf life, and a better flavour overall. However, there are a few things to keep in mind when storing nuts and seeds in order to keep them fresh.
Firstly, it's important to keep them in a cool, dry place, and in an airtight container. Ideally you want to store raw nuts in the freezer or refrigerator. Stored in the freezer, nuts and seeds can last as long as 24 months, and when refrigerated, this reduces to around 6 months. I have written another post about this, which includes how to tell if your nuts have turned rancid:
For the below recipe, once roasted, store your nuts and seeds in an airtight container and consume within two weeks at room temperature, or preferably in the refrigerator.
My biggest tip before putting the time and effort into making these delicious Turmeric and Smoked Paprika Spiced Nuts and Seeds is to taste the nuts and seeds raw and check that they are still as delicious as they should be! If they taste good going in, they will taste remarkable coming out.
💛 Why You Should Be Eating More Turmeric
If you’re not already including candida diet superfood turmeric in your diet, here is why you should be.
Turmeric is an incredibly popular spice that has been used in Asia for centuries. It has a warm, earthy flavour and a vibrant yellow colour that makes it a great addition to many dishes. But turmeric is more than just a culinary spice - it also has a number of impressive health benefits.
Turmeric is rich in a compound called curcumin, which has potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects which help to improve a number of health conditions, including the negative effects of a candida overgrowth and an inflamed digestive system.
