RE: Ot: Canning


Jelly is considered inherently safe because of the enormous amount of sugar
in it - botulism and many other nasties can't grow in that environment. If
it's regular jelly (and not made with Splenda or something like that), as
long as there's no mold you're okay. 
Jams will begin to lose some palatability after a year or so but can be
safely eaten for a long time, as long as there's no mold.

Cyndi,

I received a jar of quince jelly as a gift. Can I do something to it to be
sure that it's safe to eat? What is the self life on canned jams?
