For the yeast, it should be stored in the fridge, not freezer. For the corn meal, throw in 4-5 dried bay leaves and you can leave it out in that container. Bay leaves repel insects and spiders. Ever since I started using them 4 years ago (in flours, corn meal, etc. but also just laying on the shelves of cabinets) I have not seen bugs of any sort anywhere near or around food. HTH Chele
I bought 2 lbs of yeast for a really good price. Now can someone tell me how to keep it fresh? I found a good buy on corn meal in a plastic 3 lb, tub with a screw on lid. Do I need to put it in the freezer or will it stay bug free in the tub?
