    I've heard people claim that you could keep cooked rice as long as 10 days or as short as 48hours.

    I'm interested in knowing both when the rice starts loosing it's good taste, and when it starts being dangerous to eat it.

    Also, does it change according to the rice type?

I left out 2 raw but frozen 6 lbs beef briskets in the sink at 7PM to thaw out because they were rock hard from the freezer. I had intended to transfer them to the refrigerator but only the next morning at 7AM did I remember that I had forgotten to put them in the refrigerator. They will be seared on both sides first in a heavy cast iron pan and then braised for 3-4 hours in the oven. Is this still safe?

  • Possible Duplicate: How long can cooked food be safely stored at room/warm temperature? I cooked about 2lbs of pork loin in the crock pot for 8 hours on low last night. It was on low from 12:00am to 8:00am. From 8:00am to 12:00pm, the crock pot was turned off, and at 12:00pm the food was 'warm' but above room temperature. Is this still safe to eat? The crock pot was covered, but its anyones guess (guestimating using some math) how long the loin was at the safe high temperature. I immediately threw it in the refrigerator, but if I do keep it, should it be brought up to 135°

  • Possible Duplicate: Good ways to store coffee? I opened a new bag of roasted coffee beans yesterday and put them in a plastic box - a box with a good seal, with clip-down sides. And I put the box in the cupboard. Is there a better way to keep the beans? It'll take probably a few weeks for me to get thru the beans. I heard that the cool of the refrigerator is good, but that the beans can get damp in the fridge. I heard the freezer is good, but I thought the same could happen… How about this: I was thinking of bagging the beans in portions of the amount I'll use each day. Putting

  • Possible Duplicate: How long can I keep eggs in the refrigerator? I've got some eggs in a carton (regular Grade A eggs) in the refrigerator. The "sell by" date on them is October 2nd. Today is October 19th, so that's about two and a half weeks past. Generally, foods are good for a couple weeks past the sell by date, but how many weeks do I have before they aren't edible (spoil or generally get "the funk"). If I made french toast in the morning and used them, would they be good? I'm more concerned with 100% safety than them being 10% less awesome tasting after a certain time.
