How long does shortening last?

Wendy Lai | Oct 5, 2004 10:17 PM

I bought some years ago to season my cast iron bbq grates. I didn't use all of them, some of them are still sealed in their original container.

I'm used to using all butter for my pie crust. But I want to experiement with adding in some shortening to give it more flakieness.

So can I use shortening that's kept in a cool dark place for over three years still?
