Yesterday I went to put some holiday placemats away in my black hutch. It was a tight squeeze so I looked to see what was behind the holiday linens. It was an entire food storage kit sealed in #10 cans that we have had for 10 years. The expiration dates were years since past. I threw them all out and wondered about the rest of my pantry.

I cleaned that out today. The oldest thing I threw out (condensed milk) expired in 1999. That means I moved it from college with me. I only make one thing with condensed milk - fudge. And I only make fudge every few years. Which explains the two other expired cans that I also threw out.

Note to self: I do not need to store condensed milk. I can purchase it as needed. :)
