Full Answer

Different varieties of yogurts stay fresh for varying amounts of time. For example, an unopened drinkable yogurt or yogurt with fruit has a shorter lifespan of seven to ten days. Greek yogurt and reduced fat yogurt are good for one to two weeks past the expiration date. If there is an excessive amount of liquid at the top of the yogurt or a curdling texture near the bottom of the yogurt, the yogurt is spoiling and should be thrown away.

  • Q:

    How do you eat a pawpaw?

    A:

    A pawpaw can be eaten like a mango by first peeling off the outer layer of the skin and then eating it with a spoon. Ripe pawpaws are custard-like in consistency, and their flavor is somewhere between a banana and a mango. Seeds should be avoided because they are toxic, and flesh that is reddish should be cut out, as it is too ripe.
