How long does it take for pickles to go bad?

Then, how long do you have to wait for refrigerator pickles?

Secure lids, and place in the refrigerator. The pickles will be ready to eat in 4 days, much better if you wait a week, and even better if you can wait 2 weeks before sampling. They will keep in the refrigerator for 3-4 months but will start to lose their crunch after that.

Do pickles have an expiration date?

Unopened may have a 'best by' date on it but the pickle will not go bad as it is in a very acidic environment that inhibits harmful bacteria. Opened jarred pickles also keep a very long time for the same reason. If you see any mold or scum that is unusual in your pickle jar, then discard it.

How long until you can eat pickled peppers?

Before withdrawing the jars with the jar lifter, wait 5 minutes; this will keep the jars from leaking. Then set the jars on a rack or pad to cool. Whether you're storing your pickled peppers in the pantry or in the refrigerator, you'll want to give them at least three weeks to develop their full tart, spicy flavor.
