During the week, my partner took a black cherry jelly out of the kitchen cupboard and said ‘oh, it would be nice to have this after supper’.
So I made the jelly and added some fresh cherries to it. We had it with some Greek yoghurt and both enjoyed it.
So far, so good...

When I was emptying the recycling yesterday, I happened to see the box and I discovered the jelly’s expiry date was October 2011 !

The jelly was fine and so were we ... 😎.

Come on GNs ... can you beat my 9 years out of date?

I'd rather have an outdated 2011 jelly than those today that don't taste the same.

I've got a 2013 Christmas pud in the cupboard but it won't get thrown away as it'll come in handy for this year along with the 2 x 2 year jars of mincemeat. These'll be okay.

Can't beat anything beyond 2011 though. It would have been well binned knowing me, I've got so finicky as I've got older.

Ellan, I would have binned it, if I’d known ...

Your Chr***mas pudding will be nicely matured by December. 😎
