    Question outdated sour cream

    can you still use it in cooking ?? I have a container that we used part of for topping baked potatoes. It expired about a month ago, but it still looks fine (no mold) just a bit of water at the top. Can I still use it in stroganoff or should I just pitch it and be safe??

    Seems like this stuff lasts alot longer than it used to, ultra pasturized I guess. If it didn't smell bad, I'd use it for cooking but I'm sure most people will say toss.

    I have used outdated sour cream with no ill effects.

    faith is knowing that one of two things will happen:
    you will be given something solid to stand on,
    or you will be taught how to fly.” - Edward Teller


    “Our Earth is degenerate in these later days;
    there are signs that the world is speedily
    coming to an end;
    bribery and corruption are common; children no
    longer obey their parents;
    every man wants to write a book and the
    end of the world is evidently approaching.”

    an Assyrian clay tablet, circa 2800 B.C.E.


    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    courage to change the things I can,
    and the wisdom to know the difference

    My friend had to call poison control once because her son drank an old bottle that had rolled under the couch, Yuck! They said the expired dairy products really aren't poisonous. (cheese is rotton milk) If you can eat it and it doesn't taste bad then I would use it. It's more of a preference thing.

    I know most people would say to throw it out, but as long as there is no mold growing on top and it smells like fresh sour cream, I would stir it up and use it in something like stroganoff, mac and cheese, cheezy potatoes or some baked goods (cookies or quick bread). I don't think I would use it to make dip or anything.

    I do know that my cousin used to work for a dairy and used to bring home past dated goods all the time. Even the dairy said the stuff was good for at least a week after dates, especially if it was unopened. They have to put expiration dates on it to meet government regulations.
