Advice please. I bought loads of lean mince (goodness knows what I was thinking - maybe that I was cooking for about 20?) and did n't check the date. It was sell by Aug 23( or maybe 24) and use by aug 25. Would anyone risk cooking it now and using it to make shepherds pie to eat now and then to freeze? It looks fine - not turning grey or any such like. Shall I risk it? Such a shame to throw out so much meat.
Oh it will almost certainly be ok - only one day past use-by. If it was chicken/pork/fish it might be a bit iffy but I would definitely cook it and freeze as you suggest. And I'm really quite neurotic careful about use-by dates!
