    1. In my experience, these things last forever.

        1. Thanks to all of you for your quick responses! and thanks for that great link, Maxie, I have it bookmarked already and am sending it out to my friends and family.

          1. I don't keep them in the fridge - and last for many months in the cupboard (presumably they would last for much longer, but we use up the jar before there's any sign of a problem. The brine obviously preserves them, which is why I find there's no need to fridge.
