Help! How can I tell if my stone-ground grits are still good?

So - I'm having people over for dinner tonight and am making braised Tuscan duck legs.

I was just going to cook up some pappardelle to go with, but rummaging in my cupboard, I found a bag of stone ground white grits that a friend gave me -- oh -- probably two years ago. They've been sitting in their original paper (unsealed) bag, sealed inside a plastic ziploc bag, since then -- not refrigerated or frozen (I know, I'm stupid).

There's no lovely corny smell when I stick my nose in.

What do we think? A lost cause, not worth wasting homemade stock on?

I've got the icky pseudo-instant fine-ground polenta that's all I can find in Brussels as well...
