Emergency anchovy expiration question!
I have an opened can of anchovies packed in olive oil (that I then put in tupperware to make sure the entire fridge doesn't smell like anchovy) in my refrigerator. How long can this stay in my fridge before going bad?
As long as you make sure that they're well packed in oil and in a tightly sealed container, anchovies will keep just fine for several weeks in the fridge. I buy mine in small glass jars and they last for ages - I just add a little oil if needed to keep them covered.
If you're having trouble finishing them within that time frame - anchovies on toast with a squeeze of lemon make a great snack.
