What's the difference between fresh and processed pecans?

How to clean pecans: Fresh pecans should be stored in a cool, dry place. If they are not used within two weeks, they can be stored in the refrigerator for up to four weeks. Processed pecans should be stored in a cool, dry place and can last up to six months. They can also be frozen for up to one year. To clean fresh or processed pecans, first remove the husks by rubbing them between your hands until they break open. Then use a sharp knife to cut off the end of the nut and discard it. Next, rub the nut with a natural oil such as olive oil or hazelnut oil. Finally, rinse it under running water and let it air-dry before storing. For processed pecans, just shake them out of their packaging and into a bowl filled with water mixed with 1 tablespoon lemon juice or white vinegar (or 3 tablespoons of baking soda). Swish them around gently until all the water is gone and then drain them on paper towels.
