Flour (All Purpose)



Flour must be kept cool and dry. Warm, damp conditions cake and pack flour and provide the right environment for insects to hatch in it. Flour must be packaged in a vapor-proof material, because it readily absorbs odors. Do not store flour near soap powder, onions or other foods and products with strong odors. Flour that is properly stored will keep for six to eight months.

Store the container in a cool, dry, dark place. If possible, keep the container off the floor. Each time after the bag is opened, squeeze out the air in the bag and tightly roll down the top of the bag.

If freezer space is available, flour can be repackaged in airtight, moisture-proof containers, labeled and placed in the freezer at 0 degrees Fahrenheit. If flour is stored like this, it will keep well for several years.
