  1. I keep my corn meal, and many of my less frequently used flours and brans, in my freezer.

    1. My understanding is that if you freeze it 24 hours it kills any potential vermin. I do that wih any grain, etc. I bring home and then put it in the cabinet. In a glass jar if Ican.

      1. Sure you can. Seal them well so they don't pick up other food odors. I wish i had the room in mine.
