Storing foods – Flour

Refined Flours: all-purpose, bread, cake, self-rising

  • Place your flour in the freezer for 48 hours to kill any weevil or insect eggs that may be present.
  • Transfer it to a food-grade container (plastic, glass, etc.) with a tight-sealing lid. This will keep your flour from absorbing moisture, and ensure that insects and other pests cannot get to it.
  • Tight-sealing containers also prevent the flours from absorbing odors or flavors from other foods in the same area.
  • Store your flour in a cool, dry place away from sunlight. Flour will keep up to six months in the dark pantry.
  • If you wish to keep your flour longer, store it in the freezer instead. It will keep there for several years, but is best used within a year.

To use: just scoop out whatever you need. There’s no need to thaw it out or bring it to room temperature.
