Sugar and honey

Honey does not lose its taste qualities for several years, although over the years it can become sugary. However, it can also be used in this form. The main thing is to store it correctly - in a glass container and in a dark room. Sugar remains usable for five years if kept in its plastic bags - always on a shelf at a moderate temperature in a dry, ventilated place.


Unpeeled nuts keep their freshness in the refrigerator for 8 months and in the freezer for a year. Nuts without shells can be stored for 3 months, but not in cellophane - the packaging must let air through, otherwise the kernels will become moldy.

Both an open pack and a closed one can lie quietly for more than 2 years, especially at low temperatures. Pasta that you have already started using is best poured into a plastic or glass jar with a lid.


Shelf life is one year, but it needs to be sieved from time to time. The flour is best stored in linen bags.


As you know, buckwheat was the first to disappear from the shelves - people rushed to buy it on an industrial scale. But each cereal has its own storage characteristics. The deadline for buckwheat before its taste deteriorates is 18 months, millet - 4, oatmeal - 5, semolina - 14 months. But white rice can last up to two years, while brown rice can last one and a half. If your goal is to keep cereals delicious for as long as possible, keep them in the refrigerator.

Canned food

If home-made preparations are stored for no more than a year, then store-bought ones can last 2-3 without changes, and this applies to both meat and canned vegetables. The main condition is a dry and dark place.
