How long can I keep food for? 

Are you still eating the Christmas Turkey? 

How long after Christmas can I safely eat the leftovers? 

You may have overindulged, but there is still some of the Christmas Food Mountain in the house; but what to do with it? 

How long can i keep food for? 

This is a very common question for us, and the usual answer is it depends! 

It depends on what it is? and its ingredients? how it was prepared and cooked? and also how long is has been opened or left out. 

There is some great guidance here from Coventry University 

There is also information at and at 

But if there is any doubt - throw it out, it really isn't worth it!
