The Challenge of Stale liquorice

Devoted liquorice lovers are aware that this incredible candy, originally crafted from liquorice root and still employing liquorice extract today, can go stale. This poses a mild inconvenience for regular

liquorice consumers, regardless of whether it's black or red liquorice.

Fortunately, when stored correctly, liquorice candy has a shelf life of 6 to 12 months and remains safe to eat well beyond its expiration date. So, yes, expired

liquorice are still safe to consume!

The only time you should be concerned is if there's an unpleasant odor or the presence of mold on your liquorice. In such cases, it's best to dispose of it and not take any risks.

Tips for Preserving liquorice's Freshness

To maintain the freshness and quality of your liquorice after opening, an airtight container is essential. Safely store your liquorice in a tightly sealed airtight container at room temperature. It's crucial to ensure that the container has a secure lid since it's the air that causes the liquorice to dry out.

First Method

If you have stale black liquorice (or any color), a simple solution to soften it is to microwave it for about 5 seconds or until it reaches the desired consistency. For optimal results, wrap each liquorice rope in a paper towel, ensuring that it covers all the edges.

The recommended time in the microwave ranges from 2 to 7 seconds, depending on personal preference. Start with a shorter duration and add an additional second at a time since it's easy to overheat the liquorice. Once you achieve the desired consistency, enjoy your treat!

Second Method

An alternative approach to restoring the softness of your stale liquorice involves using a sealed plastic bag. Place the liquorice inside a ziplock bag and pour hot water over it for approximately 15 seconds. You can use either hot or warm water.

If the liquorice isn't soft enough, try using warmer water. If it becomes too soft, a brief rinse with cold water for a couple of seconds should help. Remember to use a sealable or heavy-duty plastic bag that won't allow water to seep in.

Black Liquorice Candy

While various soft candies fall under the liquorice category, black liquorice is a distinct flavor that tends to elicit either love or hate reactions. Originally derived from liquorice root, black liquorice candy continues to incorporate liquorice root extract in its production today.
