Shelf life

 

Sir, – My wife and I have just completed our annual review of the tinned culinary produce in our larder. It struck me that many of the legumes had a greater life expectancy than both of us. I’m afraid that lentil soup and, perhaps, mulligatawny, will feature strongly in our autumnal regime. – Yours, etc,
