Crank’s Rules #9

27 Sep

There is no such thing as an empty condiment bottle. There are nearly empty condiment bottles that you are sure have one more serving in them, and nearly empty condiment bottles that you are sick of looking at.

    Corallary: there is no such thing as an expired condiment. Those dates were just made up by some paper-pusher in DC and can be safely ignored.

    Sorry it too so long for me to approve this; family gathering. I’m not totally sure I agree with you corollary. Pepper sauces seem to get stronger with age.

      And this is a bad thing?

      I have three different ‘fridge sites (town house ,lake cabin, trailer) and the kids kind of freak out when we go to one we haven’t visited in a while and the Miracle Whip is six months expired. I eat it anyway.

        Well, it can play bloody hell with a recipe. Kind of like the time my Mother used genuine Hungarian Paprika in a New York Time Cook Book recipe for goulash. The results were NOT edible. Not even by my Father, who grew up in Colorado in the 1920’s and ’30’s, and was used to Tex-Mex spicing. His chili, if placed on the roof of a compact car, would eat its way through to the street. Yet he couldn’t eat THIS dish.
