Root cellar

Some long ago home canned vegetables were left in the farmhouse basement. Most had rusted and emptied, but I think I see some green beans there. Probably deadly.

Yea, I wouldn't eat those beans. I'm quite sure they are well past the Best Before date.

Unless you want to produce some rancid gas that would evacuate your house, I'd stay away. :-) Amazing that some jars still have liquid inside. Nicely composed shot!

The pickled or beans in brine are probably still edible but I would not risk it for a biscuit...a beautiful collection of jars and stuff.

Yes I would say the beans are past their use by date.
