Full Answer

Both plastic and metal containers work well for the storage of fudge as long as they have a tight seal. When putting fudge in the air-tight container, place waxed paper between layers to prevent sticking. As an alternative to this, use the waxed paper to wrap each piece separately. For maximum freshness, do not cut the fudge into pieces after it sets. Keep it in a block, and cut off slices as needed.

    How can you tell if yogurt is spoiled?

    A:

    Yogurt that has gone bad will have a small amount of liquid at its surface, curdled yogurt towards the bottom of the container and mold. Normally, yogurt lasts 2 to 3 weeks in the refrigerator, and can last 1 to 2 months in a freezer, assuming it has not been opened.

    What happens if you drink milk past its printed date?

    A:

    As long as milk is consumed within a few days of the date printed on its container, nothing will happen; milk is generally safe for consumption for a few days past this date, according to the Dairy Council of California. Most brands stamp the sell-by date on milk containers, not the use-by date or expiration date, and as long as the milk inside smells good, it is safe to drink it and cook with it. Milk that isn't used before spoiling can be frozen and used later on in recipes, oatmeal, pudding and soup.
