I just bought a package of La Banderita Corn Tortillas yesterday and the expiration date says 5/11/10...so a month and a half. But the grocery stores have to be extra cautious so I'm sure you could extend that somewhat.
I plan to make Fish Tacos tonite for my son and his girlfriend who just rolled into town for two nites...i call them my professional transients because they travel all over the world and get a job while they're there. Last stint was an Organic Farm in Belize for 3 months. They caught all their own fish to eat in the ocean. After finishing up some college courses then next stint will be Glacier Nat'l Park in Montana to restore trails etc. He even did a 3 week fishing job in Alaska's Bering Sea. They're only 24.
The power of suggestion is amazing isn't it LP
And thankyou for the warm welcome, kayelle...nice to meet you both.
...another tortilla question: Are Corn Tortillas Vegan Friendly?
My Vegan daughter is coming for dinner and can't have the fish but I can substitute veggies...BUT can she have the corn tortillas? The only questionable thing it says in the ingredients is that the tortillas are treated with calcium hydroxide...i don't guess that has anything to do with dairy products though...or does it?
Yes, the La Banderita Corn Tortillas are Vegan friendly! I just talked to the "Quality Assurance Specialist" at La Banderito where they make the Corn Tortillas and he said they are not cooked in lard but rather baked in an oven with a metal plate and a fire underneath. He said the preservatives are natural.
Good to hear! I will make a note in my special diets book. The company that makes the ones I buy here is very natural so I am sure they are the same. I had never thought of it before because I had never made them vegan before!
