    1. In my experience, these things last forever.

      1. StillTasty.com says one year. See link for more info

        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.
