■ Store unopened tofu the same way you found it in the store.
■ Refrigerate all tofu after opening and use within 5 days. Cover with fresh water and change daily.
■ Spoiled tofu has a strong sour smell and may feel slimy.
■ Freeze tofu for up to 5 months. It may absorb flavorings more easily. The texture will become more firm, chewy and sponge-like. The color darkens. Soft or silken tofu will no longer be creamy.
Freeze the entire package as purchased or drain, press, and cut tofu before re-packaging in freezer quality plastic wrap or bags.
Thaw in the refrigerator overnight or thaw in cold water or a microwave just before using
