So last night I opened a 1lb bag of Greenline Harricot Verts. I buy the larger bag all the time without a problem, but sometimes I don't use them all up before they go slimey
on me, so I went with the smaller bag this time. The "best if used by" date is today. When I opened the bag last night they were sticky
I needed those beans for something I was cooking, so I rinsed them off and used them. They looked OK and smelled OK and I figured with the nuking and sauteing they would be fine. I guess they were
Today they are not only sticky, they are blackening fast. And BTW, I left the bag open last night in the crisper thinking they would be better off if they could breathe. They weren't. They got tossed.
So why the stickiness? Usually any beans I've had go bad get slimey. And I've never had them go bad before the date on the bag, even though I was only good by one day. Is this just another way green beans can go bad?
