in other news I made a "stew" from expired and old components today. it ended up being more like a chicken and rice concoction but it was very good none the less.
I started with some chicken stock that expired last year. then a can of chicken that expired two years ago. okra that I dehydrated in 2018, some mixed dehydrated vegetables from 2018, dehydrated onions, chicken boulon, spices etc.
boiled it all in chicken stock for 45 mins and we ate it. that was the best chicken and rice I've ever had. maybe I've been too picky in the past about expiration dates and canned goods
