Whats the oldest thing in your fridge?

I was just rustling around in my fridge and I consider myself a *fairly* tidy person (except for my office ) and I found 3 very suspicious items...

* a block of parmesan cheese that has a best before of 12th July 2005
* a jar of tomato paste that you could easily mow the contents growing under the lid.

and get this....

* a jar of seeded mustard, best before 07th December 2003!!!!!!!!!!!

WTF??? I moved house in 2004, so it was already out of date and I took it with me????

I'm pretty sure I have some blueberries from July in there. I'm kinda afraid to look.

I think you can safely say you had blueberries from July in there...

A bottle of Hickory Smoke. The price tag is still on it. $0.99 and from a store only found in a town I haven't been in since 1982.

Still good, tho. I still use it. Sparingly - one or two drops is all it takes.

I figure at this rate (its half full) it should last me until 2030 or so. I wonder what it will cost then?

Save it Beestie, by then they'll discover it prevents 7 major diseases and can't be produced any more. You'll be rich.....or healthy.

I have some mellon chunks that are a few years old..... maybe 6 or 7. But they are immersed in 190 proof, so they are fine, although colorless.

Since I'm in the fridge myself fairly often, I'd have to say the oldest thing is 31 years...

I have an undated jar of Blueberry Butter (there's no dairy product involved, it's like Apple Butter only made with Blueberries) that I am fairly sure is at least five years old. I am sure it was purchased sometime prior to 9-11-01, but I can't get more specific than that.

Why do they call it a vegetable "crisper?" I've got some grapefruits that are working toward their second year down in that thing.

I've often wondered about the *crisper* thing, I've yet to find anything you put in there and it comes out "crisper"....hmm.....maybe I should put the bread in there and see if it stays softer, longer that way?
