Flour and Other Grains

Have you ever purchased flour or rice or pancake mix or Bisquick or cream of wheat or wheat germ or other types of grains and put them in your pantry only to find bugs in it when you were ready to use it? And yet, the package had never been opened?! That used to infuriate me.

.

Not only did I hate throwing away my hard earned money, but I also hated the fact that I was stuck with a useless item that I now had to replace, which meant gas for my car and loss of my time.

.

The solution? When you get home from the supermarket or farmers’ market (or wherever you purchase those items), simply toss it in your freezer for at least three weeks.

That is all you have to do!

At the end of 3 weeks you can either leave the item in your freezer until you are ready to use it or take it out and put it in your pantry or cupboard or put it in a canister.  It will never have bugs even if you do not use the item for months.

 

Why? All grains come with weevil eggs. It is the nature of the beast.  Weevils love grains. By freezing the item for at least 3 weeks, you kill the eggs and/or larvae.
