Q: Dear Dave,
My sister sent me homegrown habanero peppers five or six years ago. I have kept them double bagged and only opened the bags every six months or so. Do habaneros go bad, spoil, etc.? Do they pose a health hazard?
A: Hello Alan:
I assume that you have them frozen. If so, they won’t go bad or spoil, but they will get freezer burn and dry out a bit. Five years is a very long time to have anything in the freezer, by the way.
