    LOL, I'm finding that out now. I made a batch Sunday evening and I still have more than a quart left.

    I would love some ideas on how to use them up or as a component in another dish.

    I made them on Dec 25th and DH told me not to freeze any. He is the only one that eats beans so there is still some left. I should of not listened and put some in the freezer. I have a yogourt container left of them and now DH is afraid to eat them after 10 days. I don't think they are bad but would like to know if I am wrong before I tell him to go ahead?

    Be afraid to eat them! As a former restaurant owner/operator, I have studied food safety. Three to four days for most home cooked foods is the storage life in the refrigerator. Here is a link to a food storage chart that may helpful:

    You probably wouldn't die, unless they were contaminated with botulism or e-coli, but the body has effective ways of ridding itself from spoiled food, and your DH might miss a couple of days work due to food poisoning, and he would likely develop a taste diversion to your baked beans in the future after spending 24-48 hours in the bathroom.

    Sorry, the correct term is taste aversion. If you have ever gotten sick after eating a particular food, you know what I am talking about.
