How long store anchovy fillets in olive oil?

nasv | Apr 24, 201208:17 PM     32

Hey Chowhounds - I bought one of those small glass jars of anchovy fillets in olive oil and I opened it up tonight to take out a couple of fillets, but there are probably about 20 fillets remaining. I know I can cap it and put it in the fridge, but how long will they last more or less?

Searches indicate a wide window as short as 2 days and as long as a few months... any experiences here?

In case it matters, I do think they are quality fillets, the Italian Agostino Recca brand.

Thanks!
-Nico
