Canning expiration dates
How long do canned items stay good for? Does it vary by what you can?
The USDA official recommendation is that you use the food within one year.
I usually stay pretty close to that although I'd not have a problem eating foods a couple of years old as long as the seal is still good and there is no sign of spoiled food .
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.
