I found this really cool web site called Still Tasty that is dedicated to answering questions on food safety. It gives guidance on how to store all kinds of food, answers specific questions like the ones above and has blog entries too!
There is even an iPhone App so you can check out the site while you are in the grocery store!
The site has a search feature if you are looking for information on a specific food item. You can also use the buttons across the top of the page to help you get the type of information you want.
With food prices as high as they are, we all need to get the most value possible out of the money we spend on food. I now have this site in my Favorites folder!
