how long will an open bottle of jarred chestnuts keep in the fridge?

I opened them on Thanksgiving so it's been a little over two weeks. The bottle says five days but they don't seem that perishable to me. What do you think?

    I buy these every year for soup; they keep more than a month, perhaps even two months. I've had an open jar in there for about a month now and they are fine. See recipe kindly posted by Gio on this thread:

      Aimee I take it back! I just checked the jar in my frig and found that a couple of the chestnuts are beginning to grow mold. I threw those out and froze the rest. So I would keep no longer than one month.
