21 #MealPrep Ideas That Are Anything but Boring

Condiments Periodically Go Bad

My friend sent me a link to this great Table of Condiments that Periodically Go Bad - which is pretty much like it sounds - a table listing out the shelf-life of different condiments. The site that posted the table found it in some "weird day planner from 1997" and they're not claiming the info to be fully accurate, but it looks like decent advice. If anything, I think most of these are underestimated (I'm pretty sure honey lasts longer than 8 months). Either way, it's pretty fun to check out.

I can't remember if it's something I heard on TV or in real life, but supposedly they found honey in Ancient Egyptian tombs that could still be heated up to this day and eaten.

Honey never expires. It crystalizes, but you just need to heat it up and its back to normal. Literally can last for thousands of years. How gross is it that bacon bits are "N/A"??? Eww...reminds me why I don't eat them. REAL bacon, however...

That's awesome! I agree with you, Yum, in that I'm pretty sure honey lasts longer than that. Much longer! But either way, it's cute and different idea.
