How long do Szechuan buttons and dulce buttons last…and how should I store them?

Trackback |     

Szechuan buttons and dulce buttons both ship in plastic clamshells similar to the ones you find herbs in at the grocery store.  These are the best way to store them, so you can just throw the clamshells in your refrigerator.

Szechuan buttons tend to last up to 14 days in the refrigerator, while dulce buttons are a little less hardy and will keep for about ten days.

We’ve also discovered that Szechuan buttons are quite freezable.  They’ll turn a darker color and go slightly limp, but their “electric” effect is just as strong…possibly even stronger!
