    Try using it anyways?

    A bit before I moved to Sweden, I threw out cans/boxes that were 5+ years after. I think the boxes were actually bad, but probably hadn't been bad a year or two before.

    In the UK we have two classifications on food dates:

    Use By - This is perishable food, eg. fresh meat, dairy etc. it is very likely to become dangerous to eat after the Use By date has passed, you should really never use anything after the use by date.

    Best Before - It'll be nicer before that date, but generally you can still eat it after it's expired. It might say "once opened consume within x days" and you should probably follow that advice.

    http://www.eatwell.gov.uk/asksam/foo...terms/#A220019

    I assume you have something similar in the states, tomato paste that says "Best By xx/xx/xxxx" should be fine. Basically anything in a can should be fine.

    Also, I think tomato paste is called tomato puree in the UK.

    I know that in both the US and Sweden, that milk and eggs can be used (and taste fine) long after the use by date (which is generally a few days after the best by date).

    Yes, same in the UK but there will also be a much higher chance that they'll contain dangerous levels of food poisoning bacteria.

    The thing with milk (and everything else, really) is that it's somewhat random as to when it goes bad. You'll have a bell curve, with the expiration date placed such that a very large percentage gets bad after that date. Odds are, most of the products will get bad after that date. The good thing with milk is that, once it goes bad, all of it goes bad, so you can smell it to be sure.

    Similarly with eggs. You should always be cracking them in a bowl rather than directly into what you're making. That way, if one of them is bad, it won't ruin what you're making.

    Cheese is great. It gets tastier, and moldier, but you can always cut the mold off.

    I use to regularly eat moldy bread, and then someone told me it was dangerous (I think on here).

    I now try not to do so...

    Hey, I just learned blue cheese can go bad. It just takes a really long time, and it's hard to tell when it happens.

    Cheese generally gets inedible from the strong smell / taste before getting actually bad, I think.

    No, ketchup is tomato sauce. You use sauces as a condiment.
    Tomato paste is used when you don't have affordable fresh tomatoes for a recipe that requires them in puréed form, like a stew or a chilli... or a tomato sauce.

    In the U.S., at least, ketchup and tomato sauce mean two different things. Tomato sauce is what you put on spaghetti, or pizza (not that you put the same stuff on both).

    Same here. Ketchup should be thicker than sauce (but not as thick as paste).
