Bread & Pastries/pillsbury crescent rolls


Someone here at home put a can of rolls in the pantry. We found it about 7 hours later. We put in the refrigerator. would it still be good to use?

Hi Fred:

I think we're OK.

The worst that can happen is a bit of fermentation.

When you open it, if it smells like vinegar...toss it!

If it smells like yeasted dough...I think we are OK.

However, if you feel at all ambiguous about that, they are cheap enough to toss and start over.
