My opinion its still good as long it was tightly wrapped with a good seal. I typically have a couple packages left over every year and they always seem to be ok.

Just my .02! :biggrin:

I was talking to a woman at church that said she had some in the freezer for ten years and was still good when she fixed it - one never knows - as long as it's kept frozen and has no freezer burn - should be okay!

Ten years, I really doubt it. But being in there that long it might have been freeze dried. About two years if packaged real good and freeer temperature at zero or below.

You'll know if it is freezer burnt. It won't hurt you, but tastes bad. Even if you scrape off the dried part, the taste remains. But as long as there is no dry crust on it after it defrosts, it should be fine. Burger is the worst to burn though, since you usually don't put any water in the package to buffer it.
