Would You Eat Mouldy Food?

#1 by Voltman , Wed Oct 22, 2014 9:38 am

I always make my own decisions as to whether or not food is fit to eat, the sell by date means very little.
According to this article, choosing which moulds are safe and which are not is is a bit of a minefield.
No wonder so many people err on the side of caution and throw so much food away.

Now most tomatoes in the shops are already past their best here is a recipe to use up your tomatoes and stale bread…

The problem now is to get the bread to go stale before it goes mouldy.

Having once had a very painful and uncomfortable week with food poisoning which I blamed on Chicken from a chip shop i would always err on the side of caution. I have never since had Chicken from a chip shop in the summer.

I suspect an awful lot of food we have been eating for years is junk food.

I'm not a frequent visitor to these outlets but I think they are a bit better than they were.

Years ago one of our girls got a part time job at Mc Donalds, it was suprising what she told us.As you say they may have improved since then.

At the prices McDonalds charges I don't think it is realistic to expect very much. The old adage that you get what you pay for has never been so true.
And "better than they were" shows how bad they must have been.

There really is a difference between minced fillet steak and minced cow.

This thread was about good food going off at home. At what point do you chuck it away as opposed to chucking it up?
