how long can jarred fruit last?

asherandeva | Feb 1, 201212:40 PM


I have a bottle of raisins jarred in alcohol and a bottle of chestnuts in alcohol. I bought them about two years ago from an Italian deli and am wondering if they are still okay to eat...I'm thinking the alcohol asks as a preservant but want to be sure. Strangely I can't find out any info on commerically jarred fruit storage.

Thanks for any advice!
