Graham Flour Storage

Graham flour will quickly turn rancid. Buy only what you will use in a month's time. Store in a sealed bag or container in a cool, dry, dark place, preferably in the refrigerator or freezer. At room temperature, graham flour will turn rancid in about a month. Refrigerated graham flour will last about 3 months, while keeping it in the freezer can prolong its life up to 6 months.

Graham crackers are easily frozen. Place unopened or opened packages in zip-top heavy-duty freezer bags and suck out all the air. They should keep up to one year.

• Turn whole graham crackers into crumbs by whirling in a food processor or place in a heavy-duty plastic bag and roll with a rolling pin.

• 15 graham cracker squares = 1 cup graham cracker crumbs.

• 1 pound graham flour = 3-1/3 cups stirred.
