Yes! It should still work just fine, as long as it was stored in a dry, cool place
Thanks for the quick response Sarah:)
I think it'll be fine. I just finished a box of corn starch we've had since the Clinton administration.
Thanks smslaw...I will hope my small container will continue to thrive, without any hard economic downturns, through the remaining Obama years...;)
Previous to this winter, my cornstarch was also a survivor of the Crimean War. But ever since I developed my Polvorones recipes, i go through multiple boxes very quickly!
Le bec fin...I didn't realize that corn starch, can "stand the test of time" the way, many of you have described. Thanks for responding! in the meantime, I would love to see your polvorones recipe:)
