Tip of the Day

If you want to make sure there are no weevils or insect eggs in your flour, freeze it for 48 hours before storing.  This will kill any of them already in flour.

Do not store your all-purpose flour near food or products with strong odors such as onions or soap powder.  Instead store in a container with a tight fitting lid in a cool, dry dark area.  If stored properly it will keep 10 - 15 months.  Whole Wheat flour will keep for 3 months.

You can store your all-purpose flour in the refrigerator and it will keep 24 months.

You can freeze your flour.  Repackage it in an airtight, moisture-proof container or bag and store in freezer at 0 degrees F.  It will keep for several years.  Whole wheat flour, on the other hand, will keep for 6 months.
