Is this sorghum still tasty? And if so, what do I do with it?

I have a 12 oz. mason jar of "pure sorghum, standard grade" (3/4 lb) that I bought a few years ago from a local farmers market. I opened it today, and it still looks good, I assume, because I've never actually used sorghum, and don't know what it might look like if it went bad. When I opened it I broke the seal, so I assume there's some chance of it still being edible, but doesn't have anything for sorghum, commercial or homemade/packaged. So, 1) is it still good after a few years of being stored on a shelf, and 2) what should I do with it?

How can I find a commercial beer similar to a local favorite.

I recently tasted a beer that is brewed locally and I really enjoyed it. How can I determine which commercial beer would taste the most similar? I won't always be in this region and have access to this brewery. I'm not typically a "beer" person and don't really have tons of knowledge on beer and their flavors, but I enjoy this one and a Guinness occasionally. Thank you in advance.

No-prep veggies

I'd like to eat more vegetables. Difficulty level: I want to avoid prep (peeling, chopping, cooking) as much as humanly possible. On the plus side, I am happy to just eat things unpeeled, bite into a whole tomato/cucumber/whatever, and eat the veggies raw. Which veggies are edible/delicious given those criteria? [more inside]
