What the hell is that? Anyone want some meatcake?

Today's discard target is the mysterious collection of aged condiments in your fridge.

Grab yourself a trash bag and start weeding the safe from the dubious, the known from the unknown & frankly frightening.

Here's a handy list of how long foods can be safely stored for.

Once you've eliminated the bad and the things you know you won't eat before their "toss by" date, take a laundry marker (a.k.a. a Sharpie) and write on all the condiment bottles – over the barcode for example – one of two things:

– a greater than sign and today's date to indicate this is definitely older than today
e.g. ">20060319"

– when it should be tossed according to safe food storage
e.g. "toss June 06"

Next time you decide to do a fridge purge you'll be more accurate in throwing away those things which may be a danger to your health.
