Default 50 LBS of Almonds

Well,

I have a friend that called up this morning. I was told Hey I got 50 pounds of almonds for you, come pick them up!

WOW thats going to save me some money. However, Im wondering how should I store these? I know i can freeze them but then i thought would they change like retrograde potatoes? hahahaha

hell I can eat 3-5 pounds a week so...i will take care of them one way or the other! But any suggestions of storage or even if storage is needed...would be helpfull!

Thanks all

As usual, a cool dry place. Up to six months in refrigerator, a year in the freezer.

And you, my friend, are one lucky duck!

Would it also be a good idea to put them in sealed plastic bags (like Ziploc ones, to keep the air from getting to them?

Congrats on the big haul!

I do this all the time. Find someone who has a Seal-A-Meal that vacuum packs. Has to use special bags. No air. I do almonds, pecans, pine nuts, fruit, meat. I also buy bulk ground coffee and freeze in small bags. Everything comes out really fresh.

What would it take to grind them into coarse almond flour? There are plenty of recipes for almond "bread" or almond pie crusts you could use it for. MCS posted a "workout bread" that's similar to an almond bread I make all the time. (Search for it on the forum. It's easy to find.)
