When sugarshack was generous enough to share her bc tips I looked for hi ratio shortening in my local cake supply store. They had the ck brand. The bucket was dirty, dusty and it looked like it was there for years, I left the store without it. How long is it good for?

You should check with the CK company - they should be able to tell you.

I would think your gut instinct would be fair to go on. I had a can of crisco in the way back of my pantry. I don't know how long it had been there but it was rancid when I opened the sealed can.

I wouldn't take a dusty, dirty container as the product being bad.
Store rooms are not the cleanest sometimes.
But...you can usually tell if its bad if the product looks a bit transparent...it gets kind of a clear look to it...not a solid white.

I have a 50 lb box....they usually last me a year, maybe a little longer...icon_wink.gif

Same for me. I cut up my block into 14 oz. (2 cups, volume not weight) blocks wrapped in freezer paper and stored individually in sealed plastic containers. The containers go into a large storage bin and that's kept in a cool, dark room.

Yes I realize that it might be the stores lack of cleaning and not that it's been sitting there for years. lol
