Still Tasty!

Monday, February 22, 2010

My sister clued me in on this website today:

Still Tasty:

A lot of good info there about food safety and about what expiration dates, best by dates, etc really mean.

I do not have a sense of smell, and all these years I have thrown out milk (or put it down for the dogs) on the expiration date. Who knew that I had another whole WEEK before it would probably go bad!

I probably still won't save it the whole week (because I cannot rely on my nose, I have to play it safe)...but I will start drinking it up to about 3-4 days past expiration. That way I'll be well within the safe zone.

My dogs have had a LOT of milk over the years - bet they will rue the day my sister sent me that link! emoticon

    I just heard about the site, and am keen to check it out. I know some folks who have thrown milk out on the date on the carton for years, even after being told it's a sell by date, not a use by date. I suppose it might be better to be safe than sorry, but milk's too expensive to throw away if it's still usable!

    I think milk smells kind of gross no matter what the date says, but I love You're dogs will probably be watching the calendar and be like, "JOY it's milk day!" When they watch you pour a tall glass after the date they'll look at each other and think "WTH?" I LOVE Yorkies by the way.

    You mean smelly milk is bad? I just thought if you kept it long enough you had cottage cheese . . .

    I may have kept milk a day past the date, but after that, I was too afraid to attempt it. It all smells funny to me anyway.
