Refrigerated jars of jam, jelly or preserves will last much longer than those left out with no refrigeration, of course, so – usually way over six months.

How long can you keep unopened homemade jam?

For homemade jams made using sugar and processed by canning in a hot water bath, you can expect to get about two years of shelf life when stored in a cool, dry place. Once opened, keep your homemade jam in the refrigerator for up to three months.

Is Jelly still good if not refrigerated?

Refrigeration is not necessary, although it does slow down the oil-separation process. Do I need to refrigerate your jams, jellies, preserves and fruit spreads? We recommend refrigerating our fruit spreads, jams, jellies and preserves after opening, per the instructions on the back label of our products.
