Bought Wellshire Farms Turkey Liverwurst a couple of weeks ago to see if we liked it before committing to a more Paleo-friendly version. Liked it...pulled it out of the fridge today with a sell-by/freeze-by date of 2/3. Is it still good? It was... (more)

Considering it's not February 3rd, I don't know what the issue is. Sell-by is not consume-by. Generally dates used on food are overly cautious. Consume-by is at least a week beyond sell-by. Often closer to 4-6 weeks.

Well, the main difference between chocolate and cocoa powder is that the powder has the cocoa butter removed. As far as I'm concerned, the cocoa butter is the good part of the cocoa, as a matter of fact, good chocolate, called couverture, is... (more)

In case it matters, it's the Endangered Species Brand and the packaging is paper/folded so I don't think it's particularly air-tight. BTW, there's no date stamp on the bar so I don't know exactly how old it is. Does the lack of a date stamp mean... (more)

I just made bacon today. How long can I keep it in the fridge for use?

I just keep mine in a jar on the counter. If you use it frequently, it won't go bad fast enough. If you're only going to use it occasionally, then place it in the fridge and it should stay good for a very long time.

The shelf life of coconuts will vary based on your skill (and luck) in selecting them. A pristine, unopened coconut could be fine for 2 or 3 weeks or more, but the tiniest, unseen crack in the shell will start the decay process which advances... (more)

Primary Mind Primal Body claims that 99% of nutrients are destroyed by radiation and I think virtually all non-organic produce is irradiated since it doesn't have to be disclosed. Meanwhile, you have groups like EWG claiming that organic is only... (more)

I'm reading Joel Salatin's latest book right now (Folks, this ain't normal), and he addresses how unwise it is to fix a problem that technology created by using more technology. Less technology is what is required - in this case returning to... (more)

I would like to do some weekend cooking to make things easier and faster during the week. How long would things stay fresh? I'm not asking how long do they last (how quickly eaten) in your house. I'm talking shelf life. For example: Dozen... (more)

I usually give it a couple weeks at most. Of course, this is from a guy that thinks that as long as it doesn't move and say "Daddy" when you look in the container, it's edible. So your mileage may vary. :)

Pasteurized and/or irradiated foods are known to be depleted of some vitamins, enzymes and proteins. At the same time, these processes can cause a 3 to 5 log kill of pathogens and extend shelf life. Sometimes it's difficult to separate the... (more)

Well, I always pasteurize my raw milk before I make yogurt. That's to give the "good" bacteria a fighting chance. There's certainly no expectation that raw milk is completely - or even partially - bacteria free, so I consider this an essential... (more)
