Shelf Life, Storage, and Reheating Tips for TSH Products

Soups and Stews:

Keep refrigerated and eat up to 1 week after pick-up. It is a good idea to bring them to a simmer before eating. They may last longer if covered with a layer of fat that is unbroken.

  • You can freeze these to keep them for longer.  As long as it doesn’t contain potatoes, it will taste roughly the same as it did before freezing.  See freezing instructions below.

Broths:

  • Chicken: Keep refrigerated and eat up to 7 days after pick-up. We recommend removing the fat before eating.  It is a good idea to simmer it for at least 5 minutes before eating. If you want to keep it for longer than a week, please freeze it (see below).
  • Beef: Keep refrigerated and eat up to 3 weeks after pick-up if the fat seal hasn’t been broken.  If the fat seal isn’t complete or has been broken, eat within 7 days or so. It is a good idea to simmer it for at least 5 minutes before eating.
  • Note: Shelf life of broth can be extended by bringing to a simmer for 5 minutes, then cooling and re-refrigerating. It will last an extra week if you do this.Fermented Vegetables:
    • Sauerkraut, Kimchi, & Sauerrüben: These items are fermented for at least 5 weeks.  If kept refrigerated they will last for at least several weeks and up to about 3 months in the jar.  We highly recommend using a clean fork or spoon when you dip into the jar as dirty utensils can introduce pathogens into the jar and make it spoil more quickly. If a jar develops a pink or blue mold, then please discard it.
    • Quick pickles: These items are fermented more quickly and will usually stay good for a couple of weeks. Their texture will slowly change and they will loose their crunch. We recommend eating these within 2 weeks or so.

    Beet Kvass:

    Refrigerated, the beet kvass will last up to several months.  It may develop a white bloom on the top, which can be lifted off with a spatula or a clean paper towel.

    Meat Patties:

    Kept in the freezer, meat patties should last for several weeks, though they can pick up flavors from your freezer or develop freezer burn if kept for too long. Once defrosted, patties should be cooked within 3 days.

    Kombucha:

    Refrigerated, kombucha and other beverages will last for several weeks.

    Pâtés:

    Pâtés are best eaten within a week.  Sometimes they will hold up to 2 weeks if the fat layer on top is intact. Once the fat layer is broken it should be eaten within a week.

    Casseroles and Baked Meat Pies:

    • These are best served hot and eaten within 5-6 days of purchase.
    • The easiest way to reheat by the piece is to place slices in a lidded pan with a bit of broth or water in the bottom. Gently steam over medium-low heat until the food is hot throughout.
    • You can also reheat in the pan that it comes in by removing the paper lid and covering with aluminum foil, then placing in an oven pre-heated to 325° for 40-50 minutes or until hot throughout.

    Yogurt Creams:

    Depending on the other ingredients, these will last from 1 week (if they contain fresh vegetables like cucumbers) to 3 weeks (if they just contain spices like toasted cumin).

    Salad Dressings & Dips:

    These will usually last 2-3 weeks, depending on the ingredients.

    Granola:

    Our granola is freshly baked and then dehydrated on low heat. It contains no preservatives. We recommend eating it within a month of purchase.

    Gelatinas:

    These are best eaten as fresh as possible.  We recommend eating them within 6 days.

    Pavés and Transit Bars:

    Kept refrigerated and well-wrapped, these will last for a couple of months. You can remove them from refrigeration and let them come to room temperature before eating if you prefer.

    Fruit Crumbles:

    These crumbles can be eaten at room temperature, or gently warmed. You can warm them by removing the paper lid, covering with aluminum foil, and heating in a hot oven (325º) for 20 minutes.

    Puddings and Tapiocas:

    These should be eaten within 5-6 days of purchase.


    Freezing Broths, Soups, and Stews:

  • Important: you freeze in the jars at your own risk!  We do not replace or refund for items that break the glass in the freezer.
  • The safest way to freeze our broths, soups, and stews is to transfer them to a pyrex or other container with more surface area and then freeze.
  • If you want to freeze in the jar, to help prevent breakage you can try removing the lid and freezing, then putting the lid back on.
  • Another alternative is to remove a portion of the contents so it has more room to expand as it freezes.
  • Some customers wrap their jars in two layers of paper bags, which slows down the freezing process and prevents many breakages.
  • When thawing frozen jars of food, do not place in very hot water as this can break the jars.  Thaw in the fridge or in room-temperature/lukewarm water.
