Shelf life of raw pumpkin seeds
I'm delighted to have found this forum, and I look forward to learning a lot.
My question de jour: How long is it safe to leave raw pumpkin seeds in an airtight container in the pantry? I bought them from a bulk bin, and I'm not entirely sure of the rate of turnover there, either. I didn't realize they should be stored in the fridge until about 2-3 weeks after I bought them....now I'm wondering if I should use them at all, or just buy a new supply.
They don't smell "bad," although I must admit, I'm not sure what "bad" pumpkin seeds would smell like.
Thanks very much!
