The shelf life of foods explained. ALways check the expiration date on anything you buy before you bring it home. Store shelvers don't always rotate their stock. The product in front may have the nearest expiration date. I always Jumbo or Extra Large Eggs because I know they are going to be the freshest. Be aware of how fresh your food is and how long you can store it.
Midway through a recipe, you realize you’re out of eggs. Don’t panic. You can substitute any of the following for an egg: half a mashed banana, a quarter cup of yogurt, a quarter cup of vegetable oil, a third of a cup of applesauce. via KitchenDailyCanada
