How should I store pasta, oils & vinegars?
Dry pasta should be stored in a cool, dry place -- think pantry-like conditions. A sealed bag is not necessary. All fresh-frozen items should be stored frozen, in their original packaging, until use.
Our dry pastas are best if consumed within 18 months of purchase and our fresh-frozen products are best if consumed within 12 months of purchase.
Olive Oils & Balsamic Vinegars
Both Olive Oils & Balsamic Vinegars should be kept out of direct sunlight and away from heat.
Olive Oils should be stored in pantry like conditions and never stored in a refrigerator. After opening, oils should be used within 5-6 months.
Balsamic vinegars that contain fruit should be refrigerated after opening. Vinegars that do not contain fruit are not required to be stored in a refrigerator, but doing so will extend the shelf life. After opening, vinegars should be used within 1 year.
