All I have is peanutbutter and jelly but the other day I had left the jelly out of the fridge for about a day and a half. Do you think it's still okay to eat?

    I honestly don't know. We cleaned the fridge out last weekend, and found some "chunky" jelly... so we threw it out... maybe you can look it up online.. or perhaps (lol) the jelly hasan 800 number to call.


    At anyrate.. maybe you could have a PB and butter or something else sandwich...


    When I was a frosh in colege.. we would put butter on two peices of bread and call it a "wish I had a sandwich".. I can totally empathize w/ being broke..

    In the last 10-15 years, the jelly & jam jars began to say
    "Refigerate after opening" on them. The risk is that like any kind of
    preserve or fruit etc is that it can get moldy. Prior to this, a lot of
    people kept their jams and jellies outside of the fridge and in all
    likelyhood the jelly should be fine if only left out for a short period
    but it's not a great idea IMO. Some things get moldy really fast such
    as tomato sauce. Even in the fridge it gets moldy. I called Ragu once
    and they said to only keep opened jars of sauce for 10 days which came
    as a surprise to me.

    Thanks guys... I guess I could take the chance with the jelly, right? Whats the worst thing that could happen? d* maybe? Tayda-- I think your advise is awesome. I am gonna make a peanutbutter and honey sandwich...I like them better than PB and J anyhow!


    You guys are the best! Thanks!

    I don't know why an emetophobe would "take a chance" when can't you
    just go get an unopened jar? A non- ephobe would take a chance but
    someone who would rather go for a swim in hot lava than v*, would use
    the honey instead. Look for mold in it and make your decision. Like I
    said, i'd bet money on it that you'll be fine but if it's going to make
    you worry for the next 3 days then its worth the 80 cents to go buy a
    new jar or try to choke down a PB & honey sandwich.

    It should be ok...i've done that very thing many times (leaving jelly out overnight). I'm sure in time it would go bad, but not overnight. :-)

    Hey i can relate..."BROKE" is my middle name hehe!!

    When I go traveling or on camping trips or just for emergency storm
    preparation, I buy the smallest, cheapest jars of jelly I can find
    because the jars say to refrigerate after opening. And it just so
    happens that they are the generic store brand of jelly. They are 79
    cents a jar. Or at least they were. I think they might be 89 cents a
    jar now. I eat a lot of PB&J because it's quick & easy &
    cheap so I know good jelly when I taste it. This jelly is a little on
    the grape-juicy side but it does the trick. They have huge jars for
    only $1.59 Normally though I buy the biggest jars of Welches or
    Smucker's jelly for about twice the price. Sometimes I have
    bought JAM by mistake and I don't like the taste of grape jam as much
    as grape jelly but I find that it gives me more energy.

    I'm sorry - I had to post on this one!

    Peanut butter and jelly is so stereotypically American!!!! It's funny!

    I cannot imagine anything more foul on my sandwich. I think I would
    rather eat it dry!

    What is the appeal? ? ?

    Haha! thats great! Honestly I wouldn't eat PB and J for the longest time ' cause once I v'ed from drinking grapejuice and eating choc. chip cookies. (What kind of nursery school gives that as a snack!) So i wouldn't ingest anything that was grape flavored. I guess us crazy americans could say the same thing about brits! haha, I'm part scotish and I will never understand haggis!!! EW!

    Pretty Polly- I've never been a big fan of PB And J myself. I prefer PB and Banana's or PB and honey. Honey never expires...did you know that? It may crystalize but you can fix that problem by putting the bottle in warm water (Or at least that's what I heard)

    Pretty Polly, You know we aren't talking about what you guys call jelly, right? (That's JELLO to us!) Now, THAT would be gross! A PB and jello sandwich!!

    Mary - I admit, I am slightly confused!

    What do mean by jelly then? I did think you meant what we call jelly
    - you know that wobbly stuff that tastes like sh*t!!!

    I stand corrected if you mean something different!

    Well ok if you are talking about Jam (which I thought you were) then we keep ours out of the fridge all the time and I've never been ill, I'm sure the sugar that goes into it would preserve it right?
    Be courageous, believe in yourself, and be the best woman you can be. I'm with you all the way.

    Actually, here in the US we have an equal number of jars labeled "Jam"
    and "Jelly". Not to be confused with Gelatin, a popular brand of
    gelatin being Jello.

    Jam is made from grape preserves while jelly is made from grape juice
    according to the labels. Which is probably why I get more energy from
    eating jam but the jelly tastes better.

    what exactly is vegemite? I've heard of vegimite on crackers w/ beer. SOunds kinda gross... but what is it? When I was in the fourth grade, we had a new girl come to our school.. her name was simone.. and well she spoke funny (IMO.. cause I was a kid).. either way we became friends and used to hang out.. and I was at her house.. and they had that stuff.. they offered it.. but i was like no thanks... but never asked what it was...


    Either way they moved to the US from austrailia
