I've had a jar of dill pickles in my fridge for quite some time. It was opened at least 8 months ago. I've been afraid to eat them, because I don't know if they are still good, but I don't want to throw them away in case they are!
So, what do you think? Can they go bad if they've been opened, but refridgerated all this time?

I doubt it...we call them sodium sticks b/c of the salt/preservative content.      I think we've had them in our fridge a looong time too b/c we don't eat them often. Are you craving some?!

Hmm, I can honestly say that I've never had dill pickles in my fridge for that long...LOVE THEM. Prego or not, if they're the right brand (FYI: Mt. Olive Hamburger Dill Chips OR Claussen Pickle Spears) they WILL be eaten, lol.

Anyhow, I tend to agree that they're probably not bad, but still I wouldn't want to eat potential microbiology experiments. Food poisoning would not be fun.

Unless they're like super expensive pickles or something....

Well, I'm not really craving them ... I'm actually craving avacados which is totally wierd for me since I don't even like avacados any other time .
And, they're not really expensive pickles. I guess my mom said "waste not want not" too often when I was growing up.
Okay, truth be told, there are actually two jars of pickles in my fridge. Both have been opened and I have no clue how long the other one has been in there! Throwing away two, almost full jars of pickles just seems wrong, but maybe I just need to get over that !

I am super new here but I wanted to share a site that my Dad suggested - http://stilltasty.com/   It's a really neat site - all you have to do is type in the food you are wondering about and it tells you the life span. I haven't come across anything that it doesn't have a response for!

I think I fixed the link.

Still Tasty

This is a really cool site. I am definitely adding it to my favorites list!

I don't think dill pickles can go bad unless there is a problem with the canning process. I have canned pickles in the past, and you put so much vinegar and salt in them that they are pretty well preserved no matter what. I have a jar in my refrigerator from Christmas and I ate one just the other day. I was delicious!

And pickles don't usually last long here either. We have to order them from the American grocer as they are not available in our local market.

Thankyou for the helpful link! I went ahead and tried one last night. They tasted fine and I'm not sick so I think they're okay!
Thanks!
