Tips

  • How long do loose olives (or deli olives) last? The precise answer depends to a large extent on storage conditions - keep olives them refrigerated and tightly covered.
  • To maximize the shelf life of loose olives, refrigerate in covered glass or plastic container and keep olives submerged in liquid when storing.
  • How long do loose olives last in the refrigerator? Loose olives that have been continuously refrigerated will generally stay at best quality for about 1 to 2 months.
  • How can you tell if loose olives are bad or spoiled? The best way is to smell and look at the loose olives: if the olives develop an off odor, flavor or appearance, or if mold appears, they should be discarded.
