what to do with old unused coffee grounds that have never been “cooked”?
my question: For years I would keep coffee in the freezer as my mother did. WE do not drink it and no longer have any company. The coffee is getting old and unused. What can I do with it? Will it help in the garden in any way? Will it hurt any plants, etc., if I scatter it or dig it into the soil? I do not have a lot but want to get rid of it as it is old? I am NOT talking \"used\" grounds, but original coffee. HELP. Hate to throw it away if it is useable.. Thank you. Chellis Swenson Jensen 10-14-2019

Yes, you can use them in the garden. Unused coffee grounds actually can add some acidity to the soil, used grounds do not. They become neutral once used.
