Storing cocoa powder?

Argent3 | May 22, 2010 08:09 AM

Hi, wasn't exactly sure which board to post this question (sorry if it's in the wrong place)

Was just wondering if anyone knows the best way to store cocoa powder so that it keeps its freshness longer? I know my mom always told me to store coffee in the fridge so it would last longer but I don't know if that applies to cocoa too.

I just spent about $30 on some of the expensive Callebaut dutch process cocoa powder (will be making some cakes now but want to use it sparingly so that I still have some next year), and from what I understand it's a very "high fat" cocoa powder and should not be kept too long, but I don't know how long is too long- I am not a professional chef or anything like that. Thanks for any advice :)
