Cranberry sauce - how long will it keep?

casey30 | Dec 12, 2009 08:49 AM

I'm trying to get a bit of a head start on Christmas. For years I always made the cranberry sauce two or three weeks ahead of Christmas, put it in a jar in the fridge, and so far nobody's died or gotten sick from it.

Now I've read that it can only keep for five days. Heck, we have what's left into January (sometimes February if I'm being honest)!

Am I playing roulette here? It's not a problem to make it a few days before, but if I can tick one thing off my list...... But I don't want to take any chances either.

Does anybody out there know for sure? Thanks.
