The pantry of no return...

This week, as one of my many 'spring cleaning' chores, I decided to clean out my cupboards. The things I've discovered in the dark recesses of the back corner cupboard are strange, but expected. Almost empty bags of dried mushrooms, pasta, polenta, beans, a few jars of the worst jam my husband's grandmother every made, and spices so old they've completely lost their flavor but have flavored the air in my cupboard. I also found, oddly enough, the end of a bag of rice so old its gained sentience and formed a government.

What little goodies have you discovered in your cupboard or pantry the last time you cleaned?
