Hate to say it but
Honey Pure honey is as durable as it is delicious; it keeps safe indefinitely. Honey may change color or crystallize over time, but that
won't make it unsafe. Keep it fresh: Store in a cool area and keep tightly closed. Revive crystallized honey by placing the opened jar in warm water
and stirring until dissolved.
Rice White, wild, arborio, jasmine and basmati rice all have an indefinite shelf life, when kept free from contaminants. The exception:
brown rice. Thanks to its higher oil content, it won’t keep nearly as long. Keep it fresh: Store in a cool, dry area. Once opened, place rice in a
sealed airtight container or place original package in a resealable heavy-duty freezer bag. For added protection, store rice in the refrigerator or
Liquor!!!! Whipping up some penne alla vodka and a pitcher of cocktails? Distilled spirits —vodka, rum, whiskey, gin, tequila and the like
— don’t spoil, even after opening. The taste and aroma may fade gradually, but it’ll take ages before you notice. Keep it fresh: Store in
cool, dark area, away from direct heat or sunlight. Keep bottle tightly closed when not in use.
Maple Syrup Pure maple syrup not only makes your pancakes special, it adds tremendous flavor to a whole range of dishes. Best of all, it
keeps forever in the freezer. Keep it fresh: Refrigerate after opening. For long-term storage, freeze maple syrup in airtight plastic
My neighbor (for as nasty as they are) sometimes treats us to freeze-dried or dehydrated food. That stuff has a shelf life of 15 years sometimes!
