Place the walnuts on a baking sheet and bake them at 170 F in the oven to roast them in their shells. Use a nutcracker to extract the walnuts from the shell when the nuts have cooled and are ready to be stored in the refrigerator.

The walnuts evenly across a baking sheet.

On a baking sheet, distribute the walnuts equally, leaving space between them. The walnuts shouldn’t be crowded as this prevents even roasting.

The walnuts in the oven to bake

Place the walnuts in the oven after preheating it to 170 F. After 10 minutes of roasting, remove the walnuts from the oven. Walnuts should not be roasted at temperatures above 170 F because the fat in them creates free radicals.

The walnuts should cool

On the baking sheet, let the walnuts cool for at least 15 minutes. Placing the walnuts on a metal rack will help the cooling process go more quickly.

Keep the walnuts in the fridge.

The roasted walnuts should be kept in the freezer or refrigerator in an airtight container. Although the shelf life of walnuts varies, properly stored walnuts can be kept for up to two years in the freezer and up to a year in the refrigerator.
