Default Instant masa

Does instant masa ever go stale? I have a bag of it that has been
stored in the back of my refrigerator for 4 or 5 years to keep insects
away from it...

Yes it will, sooner or later. If anyone has a source for this in small
quantities, I'd like to know.


Grocery stores around here routinely sell just a couple of dollars
worth in a paper bag.

I only pay $2.50 for a 5lb bag factory-sealed bag of MaSeCa. It looks
like 5lbs - Same size as a bag of flour (or slightly bigger now that
flour is probably only 4lbs).


Yes, that's what I'm saying. If it's $2.50, quit whining about
needing a smaller size.

OTOH, I saw a 2 lb bag at 99 cents only.

Yes, I saw it at my local 99 cents store a few days ago.

Good to know. Can't say I've ever seen the small bags, but I don't
look very hard either because I can buy masa already made.

I would pitch the bag and get another bag. You might find yourself dissapointed with the texture and flavor. The masa is cheap and a new bag could be frozen rather than refridgerated with the portion you don't use.

I've had some go bad. I pinky tasted /smelled it and it was not good. Just test it with the nose/mouth test and you're good. Trust you.
