    This recipe looks really delicious, but is not made according to the current USDA recommendations for safety. The worst that could happen with fruit preserves is mold, but in order to prevent that the product should be processed for a short time (10 minutes or so) in a boiling water bath in order to be shelf-stable. This step sterilizes the contents, creates a vacuum, and thoroughly melts the sealing compound on the lid for the best possible seal. It's a very simple process, so don't be intimidated by the prospect. If carefully made and processed, the product would have a shelf life of two years or more, unopened. Once opened, it should be refrigerated.
    For more info on how to process jams, jellies, and preserves using current USDA-approved methods, see
    There is also a very active food preservation forum here, you'll get good guidance there.

    This recipe is written in an old-fashioned way, Jenn.

    Properly processed (marmalade/jam/jelly should be boiling water bathed) and stored on the shelf, home-canned foods are edible nearly indefinitely, but will maintain their peak appearance, flavor and nutrition for something like two years. Official guidelines recommend using up your stores in one year.

    If you use water bath processing, it should keep indefinitely on the shelf, although best if used within a couple of years.

    If you don't sterilize/can it, you will have to store it in the refrigerator, and use it up within 4-6 weeks.
