I freeze my own brined pecans, which I make very similarly to AntoniaJames' recipe, and I actually prefer them out of the freezer and store them there even if I'm going to use them up quickly. I haven't found that freezing softens them at all, but rather that it makes them more crispy and snappy. AJ, you should try it sometime!

If you are referring to the crispy spice brined pecans, the recipe for which I posted on this site -- they'll keep for at least several weeks if stored in a tightly covered container in a cool, dark place. I've kept them for several months and they've been fine, though they're better within the first month or so. I've never frozen them. I don't think I would, as I believe it would soften them, detrimentally affecting their texture. ;o)

In a tightly sealed jar they will probably last 1 - 1 1/2 weeks. I think freezing them may effect the brininess
