Blackstrap Molasses

I have a bottle of Blackstrap Molasses that has never been opened and the expiration date says 11/9/13. Would it still be good? I have heard that you can use it up to two years after expiration date.

Easy Personal Guide to Starting a Food Business

Hi, I am interested in starting a fermented food business in Staunton, Virginia. I nam likely to want to start small, making batches at home for direct sale or for sale at a Farmers Market. There are a lot of publications and guides offered on this site — so much so that it is overwhelming me a bit in terms of how and where to start, mostly as afar as what things I have to do to be in compliance with Virginia and federal at the home-based level. Do you all offer classes in this kind of thing — something basic and yet personal to help sort some of the big information out easily? Or do you offer consultations for new entrepreneurs? Best, Lindsay Curren
