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!

Thanks smslaw...I will hope my small container will continue to thrive, without any hard economic downturns, through the remaining Obama years...;)

I think it'll be fine. I just finished a box of corn starch we've had since the Clinton administration.

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