Once you open the anchovies come in contact with oxygen and are lost properties gradually. Thus it is always better to choose the format that are going to consume, and if there is, you have to eat them within a few hours.
3. Keep them always in the refrigerator. The salt and oil can solidify in the cold so it is advisable to take them out of the refrigerator about 20 minutes before they go to enjoy, to dissolve the salt and the oil and the anchovies are at their peak at the time to enjoy them.
