I have an unopened container of yellow split peas of indeterminate age. I remember buying them, but I know it was at least a year ago, and possibly more. There is no use by date or other date stamped on to help me out. Should I use them or toss? Is there a rule of thumb for these kinds of products?
Also, I had gotten them because I thought they might be tasty in some kind of soup or other dish, but have passed them over for quite literally hundreds of dinners because I couldn't think of how to use them. Any (vegetarian) suggestions?
Edited to add - my husband despises Indian food so dahl is out. He also despises ginger. Sigh.
