dry noodles

jkayd_il5November 14, 2012

While cleaning a top cabinet I found a bag of dry noodles I bought at an Amish store in June 2011. Can I still use them? Some are a bit broken but otherwise look OK. I have some leftover roast beef and may attempt beef and noodles.

Yes! Noodles are sold dry for long shelf life.

As long as you don't see any critters in the bag, go ahead and use them.

Sure. I keep dried pasta for years with no problem.

The problem you can run into with super old noodles is that when cooked, they can fall apart. It's still okay to eat them, but they don't look as good. I had that happen once, and asked a local pasta maker--he assured me they were still fine to eat (of course, I'd already tossed them, LOL)

Being in a bag, the first thing I'd do is put them into another bag and then freeze them for a couple days in case of invaders. Otherwise, a year is nothing for dry pasta. It'll be fine.

When I buy pasta, rice and the like, I freeze them then put in jars or at least an extra bag to keep critters out.
