Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Store Nuts in Refrigerator or Freezer
Because of their high oil content, nuts can spoil and become rancid quickly at room temperature. To extend their shelf life, store nuts in the refrigerator for up to 4 months or the freezer for up to 6 months.
Tip 2
Special Extra
Use a crinkle-cut potato slicer, or mandoline slicer fitted with crinkle-cut blade, to cut the apples into crinkle-cut "fries".
