BEARS will kill you.  Do not keep a jar of BEARS in the fridge.

Our pickled gherkins' label also advises rather short-term storage.

I usually keep an open jar of anchovies in oil in the fridge, so I can throw one or two in pasta sauces etc. They last for months. Last night, while making some sauce, I glanced at the label of the old jar I'm currently emptying.

Use within three days of opening.

What doesn't kill me just makes me stronger.

I do exactly the same. Only it's very rare for a jar to last for months, largely due to my habit of picking one out of the jar to nibble on every time I open the fridge.

Usually lasts a lot more than three days though.

Maybe months is extreme, but I'm not weird enough to just eat them, but I'd never entertained a use-by date, I figure I'd give up if the jar started to look an IPA. I did check the other jars and pickles that I dip into (capers, peppers, artichokes, that kind of thing) and according the labels they should all be ganging up to kill me. I've created my own plague of pickled pestilance.

  • Eating all the pies and drinking all the tea.
Today I went to a wonderful Sikh-run Indian bakery and sweetshop with a list of rules above the counter (customers are asked not to bring alcohol, tobacco and meat into the shop) and got, amongst other things, a chilli bhaji. Basically a huge chilli in batter. V tasty but not as spicy as I remember them.

My Iowa correspondent reminded me about 'snickers salad.'

It's everything you think and more.
