I need to know if you use preservatives in your baked items? I never have, but have just gotten the opportunity to sale in larger quantities and now I'm wondering if it is standard practice or not? I remember when I was a little girl and my 4-H cookies went to the state fair. Along with my ribbon and instructions on how to submit, was a package of preservative and instructions on how to add it to the cookies to send to the fair.
Can you let me know what you think about this?
Thanks;

IMO, the whole point of home (or bakery) baking is the knowledge that you are eating fresh, unadulterated food. The preservative for the 4H thing was so the judges could decide a winner without the danger of getting sick. The entries would have the advantage of a longer shelf life as food judging can take days.
