I'm making Soda Bread from the KA Whole Grain baking. I just noticed that both of my containers of Raisins (golden and regular) have best if used by dates in 2004
do you think i can still use these? The golden ones are still pretty soft, while the dark raisins are pretty hard. I usually throw out food that is past its best if used by date, but am unable to go to the store due to the foot of snow we got yesterday.
