Thanks, that makes a lot of sense! I saved myself by eating it all in one sitting :)

Probably a bit of a gamble.

Gimme Lean that's been opened in the fridge for a week and a half. It's been tightly wrapped and I'm going to sauté it and then I'm going to add it to a dish that's being baked so it will get cooked.

The wrapper says use within 3-5 days of opening.

I haven't used Gimme Lean in a long time, but it seems pretty darn processed to me. If it looks and smells normal, I'd eat it.

Thanks! It's been 8 hours since I ate it. Apparently it was fine.

The Gimme Lean stuff goes slimy after about a week.

That sounds fun, do it! (not sound advice, though, probably.)

I'd compost it. But I store all whole grain flours in my freezer, because they go rancid so quickly anyway.

I would probably get rid of it. If it has absorbed a lot of moisture, it won't measure correctly and may have an off flavor.

i dug down for the most normal-looking flour and composted the rest.

i think the last time i went to the flour dealer i bought rye instead of WW, which at least i would have used in a somewhat timely manner. rye, i just use so rarely..... next time i'll just get it right when i need it.

I have never ever eaten Kimchi before, so I have no basis for knowing what it should taste like or smell like, or how long it keeps. My mom bought a jar at the farmer's market and kept it in her fridge for a long time then decided she was never going to eat it and gave it to me. It has now been in my fridge forever (I have no idea what to do with it or if i'll like it, so i've been nervous to try it). It has never been opened or out of the fridge longer than the time it took to get it home from the farmer's market and from my mom's house to mine. She bought it about a year ago. Maybe even 18 months. It is my understanding that fermented food lasts for a long time, but is that just too long? Should I toss it without opening it?

i've found that pickles that old usually have gone bad if they're open, but i know you can store them sealed for years and years. i would honestly toss it and try again, because it would suck for your first kimchi experience to be with bad, old, kimchi. also, you won't know if it tastes horribly off.

Yeah I made my own kimchi once and thought because it was fermented it would be good indefinitely. After a year in my fridge it was rank. Since I'm not a kimchi expert I couldn't tell if it was just more aged or spoiled so I tossed it.

I've had a huge bottle of Lizano Salsa sitting in the fridge for a couple of years now...do you think it has gone bad? It doesn't look bad....but not sure if I should eat it! Or if it is one of those things that lasts forever...

It is this stuff here from Costa Rica: http://i-cdn.apartmenttherapy.com/uimag ... inal-1.jpg

I would eat it. I love the stuff and don't care how old it is! I'm sure it is probably fine if it isn't moldy or gross. I would happily eat your salsa if you lived closer to me!

Okay awesome!!! It isn't moldy or anything, it smells fine, so I'm gonna eat it! It is a gigantic bottle of the stuff so it would be awful if it went to waste!

I find it's very easy to tell if strawberries are even at the beginning of going moldy, so I would eat them if they smelled/tasted fine. I often leave berries out on the counter when the house is cool.

I read somewhere that rinsing strawberries and other berries in 1 part vinegar to 10 parts water will prevent mold growth and have them keep longer but I have yet to try it.

I have a bag in my cupboard that's been there ages. I find chia repulsive so I should give them to someone who will use them. Unless they go bad... I figured they kept forever.
