Anchovies overload

moh | Apr 12, 2009 03:22 PM

We have somehow ended up with large quantities of both oil packed and salt packed anchovies. We have kept oil packed anchovies in our fridge for an embarrassingly long time, and they have still been ok. But the salt packed anchovies are a new thing for us.

Marcella Hazan says that you can store unused salt packed anchovies in the fridge if you cover them with olive oil. But she says to use them within 10-14 days, with the best time being within 1 week. But I was wondering, are there any other ways to store them? Can they be frozen with reasonable results? And if you freeze them, in oil or just straight?

Thanks for your help!
