Hi All, my sister-in-law has just given me a recipe for beetroot jelly, she says she can't make enough to keep up with demand from her family, what I was wondering was, as it has white wine vinegar in, if I made it in sealed jars how long would it last as there is only my husband and myself. Thanks all

is it made like a fruit jelly with pectin or like the US jellies, made with gelatine? If its a pectin based jelly, it will keep for at least a year if you are careful to sterilise the jars and pot it hot.I am still eating last year’s crab apple jelly and its fine. If its a gelatine based recipe then it won’t keep more than a week or so as the gelatine deteriorates and then the jelly goes weepy.
Sounds interesting..
I agree with woof's comments and would add that, if gelatine is used as a setting-agent....once opened, the contents will grow moulds quite quickly, even when refrigerated.
langara I have just had another thought, which should have mentioned before. I love home made stuff but live alone so I make very small amounts at a time....two or three small jars maybe. I also pot into small jars so the pickle/chutney/jelly isn’t open for so long. Its usually very easy to downscale the recipe and it has the added bonus that any boiling takes less time.

Thanks all, just to answer a question, it is made with a normal raspberry jelly, am going to have a go tomorrow, will let you know how it tastes.
so gelatine based? short storage then. I would say a week tops in the fridge. make sure you serve it with a clean spoon to avoid contaminating it.
