Your box of JIMINI’S aperitif insects is open, what to do (and what not to do)?
Tonight was the first time you ate edible insects and you had trouble finishing your box? Did you decide to save some crickets for the next day’s aperitif? Perhaps you bit off more than you could chew or opened several boxes at once? In short, you haven’t finished your tin and you’re wondering how to preserve them without losing their crunchiness and delicious flavour?
Here are the solutions for preserving your edible insects.
Good news! After 4 years of research on how to store crickets, 12 patents filed and a test carried out on a panel of over 6,552 people, we have THE solution: the hermetic plastic box also known as Tupperware.
To store the insects safely, I simply slip them in and close the box tightly.
Your insect appetizers can then be kept away from the ambient air and humidity, which will keep their crispness and allow you to serve them at the next appetizer (up to one week after opening) provided they are kept at room temperature and protected from light.
How do you do it? Don’t have a Tupperware?
Fortunately, we have a plan B: the airtight bag or freezer bag. Once sealed, it will protect your dehydrated seasoned insects from humidity and air, provided that you have emptied as much air as possible from the bag before sealing it.
That’s it! You see, it’s easy to preserve your edible insects! But after all these little conservation tips, between you and us, who doesn’t finish their delicious box of JIMINI’S edible insects?
