Q: I recently pulled out a bag of bulgur that had been tied up and stored in a jar, where I keep my other opened bags of grains. I know it's been there for some time, and when I opened it, I noticed some stringy, cobweb-type things hanging in there.
This has happened to me before with lentils I left in the cupboard for a few months. I threw the bulgur out, but I'm wondering what it is and if it's harmful, or if a quick rinse would be enough. I hope you know what I'm talking about!
