Yes! It should still work just fine, as long as it was stored in a dry, cool place

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!
