Just who knows the truth? Ignore "Use By" Dates? - Slashfood
i ignore use by dates on milk etc...buttermilk stays good long after the use by date.....regular milk will last a week or so after...seafood ....not so lax about.
Eggs are another thing that are usually good long past the date on the carton. Know how to tell if an egg is still good? Put it up next to your ear and shake it gently. If it sounds like liquid, don't use it. Otherwise, you're all right.
I ignore my liver expiration date.
It takes a licking and keeps on....doing what ever the liver does.
Who is your onion Daddy??????
Much also depends on how you store something, etc... whether your fridge is colder... whether you freeze things, etc.... hell, growing up, one of the best bargains would be to buy meat on the last day that the store is supposed to sell it... take it home, pack it in freezer bags, and put it right in the freezer... have done that many times in my adult life too, when I was making a lot less money
Seems I was burnt by some "bad" mayo quite recently.
Ignore, but within reason!
Keep in mind that food does not turn toxic overnight if you exceed use by dates. The quality of the food may deteriorate but it is not necessarily "bad"
Your nose is still one of the best indicators
Yah, I got many a good piece of "aged meat" that way.
LOL... but I do remember a lot of time my grandmother trying the "taste this and tell me if it seems bad" routine... God, I hated that
The green mold is a good tip off
