Still Tasty?


Have you ever wondered how long your favorite foods are safe to eat or what is the best way to store them? Of course you have, we all wonder. We think we know, we use our common sense but do we really know what we're doing?
Did you ever think that food was still ok to eat as long as there wasn't any visible signs of freezer fur?
I once caught my brother heating a can of pork and beans in the can over the stove. Why dirty a pot. Is this safe? He thought it was.
Is it ok to eat the left over pizza your teenagers forgot to refrigerate last night?
What kind of friend and responsible food blogger would I be if I didn't point you in the right direction to answer all these questions?
Click your mouse over to Still Tasty and put this in your favorites. Still Tasty is a very informative and well put together site that answers a lot of questions about just about any category of food you can imagine. I have spent a lot of time at this site and have learned a lot.
They don't know me and I don't know them; a friend emailed this link to me and I felt it was important to share.
Hey...Happy Halloween!

Have a wonderful day. It's pouring rain here this morning and the yard is covered with leaves --even after using the leaf blower yesterday. Oh Well!!!!!

Hugs,

Sounds like a great site. I shudder to think about the things I ate in college...how long's that pizza been out? Oh well!

A Year on the Grill said...

just got back from 45 minutes there... Great site, thanks for the link (but I am pretty brave about eating questionable stuff. fuzz and fur bother me, green slime scares me, but just out overnight is worth a shot

Cheryl said...

Cool, I wonder all those things every single day. My husband is fearless and will eat way old stuff and yogurt that is 6 months old!

Happy Halloween!! I love the "freezer fur" label...how funny. Thanks for the link. It's blowing 50MPH (with freezing temperatures) so no trick or treaters yet.

That definitely had a wealth of information!

Since we almost never have leftovers (teen and 20-young boys, remember?), and I'm lunatic about never leaving out food, this has never been a problem in my life. But it's a good site for reference! Happy Halloween to you, too!

What a great tip!

This pasta dish is really singing to me!!! I will be making this real soon.

To answer your ?, any berry is okay to use. Just lightly dust them w/flour so they don't sink to the bottom of the batter ;-)
