Expiration Dates...what do they really mean?

September 19, 2010 - 1:53pm -- Bohh


As a new baker I have a question for you all. As we know, lots of ingredients have "Best if used by dates" on them. Everything from meat, to eggs, to peanut butter, to syrup. Anyway, I've been looking online to figure out how long these ingredients will really last. For example, a source I found said you can store butter for 1-3 months.
