Just curious :) Thanks.

  1. I've had mine in the fridge for about 4 months. Like other things, keeping it from cross contamination helps. Clean spoons do wonders for saving condiments.

    1. a looooong time. if it's in a tin, take it out of the tin. if it's in a bag, pop it in zip lock and get the air out. should last a few months.

      1. Good question IndyGirl... I have often wondered if the stuff in my fridge is still ok too! I just got up, went to the fridge, and took a sniff. Seemed ok but then I don't remember what is smelt like when it was freshly opened either. By the way, that was opened well over a year ago!

          1. Well, mine is in a glass jar. It's been a good while, though. I couldn't specify how many months but I'd say at LEAST six.

            I guess I should just sniff it? I am a bit of a food safety nut. I also think that I ahve always used clean spoons,so that shouldn't be an issue.

            Further thoughts? If the verdict is no, I'll have to run to the store. Gr.
