    #25000269 - 02/17/18 02:40 AM (3 years, 2 months ago)

If you pressure cooked it then it should be fine but using previously contaminated stuff always makes me nervous.

Do you make pasty plates or do you pour?

I definitely wouldn't reuse it. The bacteria could have made toxins or chemicals that swing the pH away from neutral. Dead bacteria isn't in any recipe I use.

I concur. Toss it, always better safe then sorry.
