Well, if you opened them and left them open, I guess it wont last more than 3 months in the refrigerator..
But if they're still closed and sealed, you'll know from the date written on the packing.. It's called theexpiry date..

Hope that I helped..:D

Peanut buttr does not last that long for storage on a really long term basis because the oil will go rancid after a year or 2 ..

Contrary to another answer, that isn't an 'expiry' date, it's a Best By date. Canned and dried goods are safe for many years if they are stored in a cool, dry place. Peanut butter in a jar will go rancid after a while, but that doesn't make it unsafe, it just won't taste very good. You can buy canned peanut butter, which will last as long as any other canned product.

Do you have a vacuum sealer with a jar lid attachment?Many things will last a very long time sealed in mason jars if you remove the air.

Beans give off a gas as they age.Old beans will not absorb water well.They can still be ground up and used though.

Get yourself a dehydrator and dry out your canned corn, peas and carrots.We've got 9 cans of corn in our dehydrator right now and they should be done in about another hour or so.Nine cans of corn will fit in a quart jar once dehydrated.Great space saver.Keep any food sealed in jars out of sunlight.

The idea behind having a food stockpile is to rotate your stock.Eat the old and replace with new.We have close to a years supply at any given time.We dehydrated more than 80 bell peppers this year out of our garden.Probably close to a hundred pounds of potatoes, thirty pounds of carrots, tons of onions (or so it seemed), a couple hundred tomatoes, and at least five jars of celery.

The oats stored in glass jars and vacuum sealed should be good for at least a couple of years beyond the best by date when you bought them.Probably longer than that.Do not use plastic bags.Plastic is not an oxygen barrier.You might consider buying whole oats and rolling them yourself.Whole oats can be stored for decades like wheat in the right conditions.Long grain white rice stores MUCH longer than brown rice.

You might also consider getting yourself a pressure canner.It can be a lot of work at first but it pays off when you want something to eat that's good and you don't want to cook that day.We've got dozens of jars of chili, ham and beans, beef stew, chicken, pork sausage, etc.Saves a lot of freezer space too.

As has already been said, the peanut butter isn't going to taste very good out of the jars in a couple of years.
