Re: Truth in labeling <a rant>


My father was OCD so I've got a habit of emptying everything out of the cabinets and pantry every couple years regardless of best-by dates.

Now, it would be a travesty to pour down the drain Spaten, Jever, Prima Pils, etc.

They were in jars with glass lids with red rubber seals , some of the seals had failed due to age, but the Peaches that were still sealed were the most delicious Peaches (canned), that I have ever had the pleasure of consuming.

So I do think that as long as a seal has not been broken, the contents are safe to eat.

I recently discovered a can of Mini Ravioli, in my cupboard, with a best by date of 2009, it still tasted fine, and I did not get sick from it.

I'm not sure I would have considered that canned pasta and 'meat' as good tasting even back in 2009!

Yes, but do you hit them?

And what so you shoot them with?

When my wife and I go camping in the mountains, we keep our dogs in the tent with us. And I keep my 1911 .45 ACP next to me. Locked and loaded but not cocked. I figure that while I may not the things that go bump in the night, I will sure as hell scare them.

Would that buy entrance into your stockade when the apocalypse comes? I do have a few others that would come along with me.

That said, as a salt connoisseur I can assure you that "sea salt" vs "pink" vs "lava/black" from different areas in the world all have distinct profiles. My favorite, and daily blend, is Mediterranean Sea, Hawaiian Pink, and Hawaiian Lava. I use rosemary salt on/in potatoes, "standard" sea salt is for cooking and baking, table salt for boiling, and fire salt (which has peppers in it) on home made chips, popcorn, and in ranch dressing dips. Occasionally I'll throw some fire salt into my deviled eggs just to keep my husbands co-workers on their toes :P
Mystriss, what bugs are interested in salt?

Also, table salt for boiling? I don't even think I have table salt in my house. It is either Kosher salt or Sea Salt. I have two salt grinders on my table, regular Sea Salt and Himalayan Pink.

I just got some Rosemary Garlic Sea Salt in a grinder. Man oh MAN is it great on steaks. I can't wait to use it on some lamb lollipops.

Typically beetles with hard shells, there's a particular cabinet or warehouse beetle that is fairly known to get into salt shakers. Also bed bugs are generally immune to salt.

Most gourmet salts are best for finish seasoning before eating and most boiling applications like for pasta you're dumping the water out which gets rid of most of the salt. I like to use a dash of oil, usually some variety of olive, with my pasta. I kind of meant in general, I do use salt in my rice water, table or gourmet, depending on what I'm making.

Re: Truth in labeling <a rant>


Papereater, I concur. I don't drink beer as a general rule, and certainly not daily. When I do, however, it is a coffee porter, or other dark craft type beer. Definitely not one of the water beers sold at the 7-11.

Re: Truth in labeling <a rant>


Buy bottled water lately?

it too has a expiration date.

This became a 'thing' about 15 years ago IIRC, where some state on the east coast requires EVERYTHING that is consumed, have an EXP date.

So to just make life easier, instead of having two diff containers depending on where its going, EVERYTHING now has an EXP date.

Unsupported bending point at the top of the wall, It has no wind resistance. Start a thread if you want to talk about it.

I also noticed this some weeks ago without ever really intending to find an expiration date. I think all I said to myself then was "Huh..."
