This recipe keeps for approx. 4-5 weeks. That is if it hasn't been scoffed by the family. It's great for large family get-togethers, ie Xmas or just as a summer stand by in the fridge. I make this in a plastic bucket that is only used to make this recipe. I also have a 2Lt.screw top preserving jar that it is kept in. Takes less space in the fridge. I say it is 30 serves but that depends on how much you put on your plate.
