How can you tell if anchovy paste is bad?

Asked: TN Moving Waters Guide Service, Last Updated:

I don't like some of the commercial ones I've bought because they used lousy vinegar and oil. You might be able to get the fish fresh yourself, but know that tiny fish like these go bad very quickly. The way to tell if an anchovy is really fresh is that it's silvery. If it's blue or dark, it's not as fresh.
