Refrigerated shelf life for home-made cranberry sauce?

Asked by gailcalled (54575points) November 18th, 2007

I have a contractor coming on Tues. to install kitchen tiles, raise some dust and make a mess. He’ returning on Wed. am., to finish up, in theory. HA! Can I make the cranberry sauce on Mon. night, and have it OK for Thurs? I like my hosts too much to off them by cranberry.

Yep, it’ll be just fine.

Cranberry sauce is usually so acetic that it’ll keep for months—I wouldn’t trust it fully more than a week or two, but you’ll be fine for a few days.

I had to look up “ptomaine poisoning”—do people actually use that in conversation? Just curious because I had never heard it before.

I have never met a word that I didn’t love. However, in common parlance nowadays, it is food poisoning. Ask your parents or someone a generation older than you.

And I am always thrilled to send people to the dictionary. As a kid, I used to read it under the covers w. a flashlight.

Thanks for cranberrry sauce advice.
