I cleaned out my pantry yesterday. If you have been following my blog then you know that I am an admitted hoarder. This character flaw is magnified when I have invested time and money into those items I tend to hoard, such as bottled fruits and vegetables. Sometimes they get pushed to the back of the shelf just long enough for me to question their safety for consumption. Now, that would be the moment that a wiser woman might open the jar, dump its contents, and wash the jar for future use.
Not me! I will wipe the outside of the jar clean and reverently place it back on the shelf until such time as I run across it and question its safety once again! Yesterday the item was pickled beets from 2002!
I dumped it!
