- Keep track of expiry dates. Canned goods usually last for two years. Acidic canned foods (tomatoes) may only go to about a year to a year and a half.
- Your cupboards and shelves are good enough storage for your canned goods as long as they’re cool and dry. Never store cans near heating pipes and stoves. Heat would cause them to expand. Likewise with extremely cool places where the cans might freeze.
- Throw out any can that has discoloration or rust. Don’t bother checking the date or even taste-testing it. Seems like waste but there’s no point in gambling your health over a couple of dollar’s worth of canned food.
- Here’s a tip that goes well with my previous tip on cutting down on fat from your diet. Refrigerate unopened cans of soup. You’d note that the oils and fats would’ve congealed up top. You’d be able to skim them off easily.
