Beets - How long can canned beets be stored.
I have home canned beets from 2006 and 2007; are they still safe to eat????
The official USDA recommendation is that canned products be used within one year.
However this is a debatable topic. The nutrition levels will start declining but many people do use their home canned foods longer than that.
If you choose to eat them just be very sure that the seals are still sealed, and the food has no off odors or funny colors.
