Can I eat this? Expired treacle in Christmas pudding
December 12, 2013 4:50 PM Subscribe
I bought brand-new treacle today, but accidentally used the old expired tin ""BB END MAY 2012 DISPOSE OF ON EXPIRY" instead of the new one. Nothing looked strange when I used it; I only noticed what I had done when I found the new tin with the seal still on it. The Christmas pudding will have been steamed for almost 5 hours. How dangerous might it be to eat it?

Obviously, I would tell everyone about the treacle issue and let them decide.
Unfortunately, I can't make another one because I'll be working for 17 hours tomorrow. A store-bought replacement isn't an option, because it needs to be gluten-free, nut-free and alcohol-free.
