  2. Size. Usually these nutlets are comparable with an area of a nail on a little finger and are approximately identical on the dimensions.
  3. Look. Color of a shell and the kernel has to be uniform, without visible spots (these are traces of parasites or diseases), garbage. A color of qualitative fruits — brown, often slightly lightened. The darkened tip of the cleaned kernel will prompt that the product was stored too long. And here the black dot on the crude nutlet, on the contrary, will be the good sign of the fact that inside there is a kernel.
  4. Smell. Almost inaudible unpleasant notes like ashes or a mold will be an occasion to put nuts aside.

  • 5, at most 6 months for a product in a shell;
  • if nutlets undertook in packing, usually are guided by a decree expiration date. However, there is one cunning: after the pack is opened, the cleaned kernels can be eaten within 3-4 weeks (with a shell — to 2 months).

All these terms will be sustained on condition of competent storage. It provides first of all placement of a product in containers with a skintight cover. If those did not appear — also the sterile glass jar will descend (with a cover too).

But even before nuts dry a little, having spread out a uniform layer and having left for several days.

Also temperature is important: similar stocks do not love differences and a heat therefore the cool dark corner or the fridge will become the best place for storage of a container (it is possible to put also in the freezer). From here also requirements for a part of humidity follow — it has to be moderate, but not too lowered. You should not neglect this rule, otherwise nuts will grow mouldy or will dry out.

Important! Most longer the nuts picked in September remain.

  • longer method — soaking in water (12 hours or day) after which reservation will strongly become soft;
  • many fry thoroughly stocks in a frying pan or calcinate in an oven (at +110 … +120 °C). On it 3 minutes, and the main thing — any fat will leave;
