When does sour cream expire? I've done an online search and I've read anywhere from 2 days before expiration date to 1 year after. I have some pound cakes to make and just realized that I forgot that sour cream was in the recipe. Its storming here and I didn't want to get out into the rain. I found an opened container in the fridge and the "sell by" date is April 29th.
Anything dairy like that I wouldnt use if the date says its expired. Your just asking for trouble if you do! Im surprised there isnt mold on it by now!
Definetly, dont use it. Someone could get sick.
Thanks. I meant to say an "unopened" container but I think I would still be better off getting more.
Yah, Im sure if you open it, it probably has green fuzzys on the top! Sorry, I think your going to have to get wet.
LOL I'm going to resist seeing those fuzzies and just throw it out. Thanks again!
lol, I dont blame you there!
Just to show how dorky I am, I called the toll free number on the container. They weren't there but one of the faq's was how long was the shelf life of sour cream (so it's not just me LOL). They recommend using within 2 weeks of the sell by date.
lol Yah, I think your a bit beyond that!!
I just noticed you were in Macon. I worked for a company that had its home base there.
just a tad bit. I opened the container, no green fuzzies but it was kinda runny. I'll have to go out tomorrow and get some. Hopefully its not raining then.
What company do you work for?
