I just put the unopened half package from Sam's in the freezer.  I seal up 
the opened package in a jar and also put that in the freezer.

I keep a small jar in the refrigerator for current use.  There is about 
enough in this jar to last me a month, and then I refill from the freezer.

Have never had any problems doing it this way.
