Do nuts go rancid after the expiration date? If not right away, how long after?

They're halved, roasted and salted pecans from Trader Joe's that expired 8/2011. I'm hungry.

Taste them if they taste ok go for it. But the will go rancid at some point.

Don't wait for them to go rancid, just put them in the freezer.

Good idea - I never thought to put them in the freezer.

Once I've opened a container of nuts, I store it in the refrigerator. Give them a smell. If it sends you reeling, they're rancid. You'll never forget that smell.
