After uniting a couple of hives, I find I'm the lucky owner of 7 or 8 14x12 frames partially filled with stores, capped and uncapped.
There's no room for these in the hives so what's the best thing to use them for? Just store them for possible later use?

Freeze. You will be grateful for them.
Or if you don’t want to do that extract let the bees clean them and store the drawn frames. These are invaluable
