FAQ jam

How long can the jam be stored?
Unopened the jam has a shelf life of three years (at a temperature between 5 and 30 degrees Celsius) from the production date. Because we produce on a small scale, the jam you receive will almost always have a shelf life of at least 2,5 years.
Once the jar is opened, the jam will keep for another 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
