I just opened a large can of the vintners harvest strawberry base....have never used this before. The inside smells like strawberries but the are a brownish color. Is that normal for canned strawberries? Should I use them? Thanks in advance.
We have looked all over the can and can't find a date anywhere. I tasted one and it tasted okay, just really soggy.....so went ahead and started it. Figured I'd taste it along the way but so far before the yeast was added, it tasted like sugary strawberries. Fingers crossed. Thanks!Whats the date on the can? Old ? Some fruits will appear off color when highly concentrated. You might take a measured sample (Couple of ounces) and dilute it to the recommended amount and check the color.
