Today’s kitchen tip is from Andrea of Andrea’s Kitchen. Be sure to stop by her gluten-free blog if you haven’t been there before.
Andrea recommends dating all your non-perishable items, including canned foods, pasta, and spices, as soon as you bring them home from the store. Andrea says,
“I started doing this when my husband and I moved several times within a few years and I realized I kept seeing some of the same canned goods and I started wondering how old they really were! I like to use canned beans to make bean salads, and I also realized that they tasted better and had a better texture if they were consumed within about 6 months, despite the stamped date on the can. Dating cans helps you to use them in the order you bought them too.”
Thanks for the tip Andrea. If you have a kitchen tip you would like to share with everyone, send me an email.
