I keep them in the freezer in a zipper-lock plastic bag. They can be used directly out of the freezer - no thawing necessary. They have a high oil content, so they go rancid quickly at room temp.

I do the same as GG, unless I plan on using them quickly. Then I just keep them in a cool cabinet.

I keep them in my pantry in a sealed container, but I go through them quick enough that I buy more almost every week.

I do the same as GG, GB, and JPMC. If I thaw too many, I keep them in a container in the fridge.

fridge, dark cool place, or frozen. all work.
storing them out in the open also works, but they lose vitality.
