    Green bean use by time?

    Can someone please let me know if I can still roast old (few years) green beans? They are vacuumed sealed. Cheers

    The vacuum seal is helpful. Would’ve been better if they’d been frozen, but if they’ve been kept in a cool, dark place that isn’t exposed to warm temps or lots of temperature variation then they could still be ok. At the end of the day you might as well roast them as you’ve got nothing to lose really. They might be past their best, but hopefully the vacuum seal will have prevented them taking on any ‘bagginess’.
