I made a lemon/lime cheesecake Dec.2013 and we ate it July 2014. I put the cake on a china plate in a cake box, sealed the box with tape and a big elastic band. When I decided to serve this cake, I removed from the freezer 2 days before and let it sit on the counter for 3 hours. I then put it in my fridge for a day and a half. Lastly I put 1/2 can of cheery ...

It Depends. First off, by 'goes bad' I'm assuming you mean both 'stale and unpalatable' and 'moldy and not food-safe'. And for both of those, it's going to greatly depend on what ingredient, what you're making, and how you're making it.

For years I have bought 12 packs of canned diet coke when they are on sale at holidays. All of a sudden - I quit drinking ...

Expiration dates are used by food distributors as an inventory control rather than a safety notification in the US. Some packages may be marked Best by. That refers to flavor and texture not safety. My issue with rice is the pantry moths. I buy rice in 2-5lb bags. I place the bag inside a ziplock freezer bag and put it in the freezer for at least 24 ...

Most of the apple juice sold in the US at least is Pasteurized. So unopened, you should have no problem storing at room temp. Once you open the bottle, microorganism's can get in. With a sugary liquid like Apple juice, wild yeasts will find a happy home, and ferment up a bubbly alcoholic apple beverage for you. This can take a week or two to happen, and the ...

You need to keep it sealed for two reasons. First, everytime you add new cream, you are warming the top layer of the frozen cream, and constant temp changes will damage the consistency of the cream. So freeze separately. Secondly, by not sealing, you are exposing it to the oxidation and dehydrating elements of a freezer, you'll get 'freezerburn' on your ...

My dad does the exact same thing in India and he keeps it covered with a lid in the freezer if not sealed. And the cream does last for months like @ElendilTheTall suggested.
