Featured Question

I have several pounds of brown rice that are 2 to 4 years old. I was about to cook some when I read that it should discarded after one year. I was born near the end of the Depression, grew up during WW2 and have an almost DNA level reluctance to waste food. So my question is: "To eat or not to eat!"? I also have some red lentils that have hanging around for over 3 years.
