Wondering whether that food you found is okay to eat… or not?
Still Tasty has a comprehensive list of foods, with safety and shelf life information for each item, to help you tell whether you should grab it or leave it.
Personally, I find lots of food fine to eat after removing the wilted or black bits. Sometimes that means throwing out half a pepper, but that’s better than throwing out a whole pepper. I’ve observed a storekeeper sorting through baskets of berries to throw out the rotted ones, and the food being sold looks sometimes worse than stuff in the dumpster – so going behind the store may be the better option!
How do you decide what to toss or take? Have you ever had a nasty experience with food you found?
