Korean cooking forum topics:
I just bought some boiled and dried anchovies from my korean market, it tells me to keep them frozen, is this neccessary? If they are dried why do i need to keep them frozen, is it okay to just leave them out or is it important to keep them in the fridge?
Thanks for the help!
*realised I posted it in the wrong section lol, should be a delete button, sorry :(*
Although it’s dried, freezing them allows it to store longer. Dried anchovies can go stale if out too long in the cabinet and in humid temperatures, suck up the moisture. If you bought alot and are planning to use them for a while, it’s best to freeze them in a ziploc bag.
Yes i am agree to this that you should have to freeze them to use for a long time i think after freezing they are protected from moisture and the germs
here are some tips for you
I live in a humid climate and always kept mine in the fridge after one incident where I left themm out too long and they developed mold. Yes, they are dried, but they can absorb enough moisture from the air to become a nice little home for all sorts of mold and such. Same with red pepper flakes. Mine get moldy if I don’t store long-term in the fridge or freezer. I’ve never had dried seaweed go moldy on me, so I store them in my pantry, but I have had seasoned gim sheets go limp if not kept in a humid-free place. So I keep those in the freezer as well.
