4-6 weeks
STORAGE. Refrigerator pickles are good for 4-6 weeks, when kept refrigerated and the lids are sealed after each use.

They have the perfect balance between sweet and tangy. So I was wondering why they are called bread and butter pickles.

How do I know if my homemade pickles are bad?

Why are my pickles fizzing?

At home, you’d store fermented pickles in a mason jar with the lid sealed or in a twist-top food storage container. Unsurprisingly, when you open a container of fermented pickles, the lid will pop, and the brine will fizz. So fizzing from the buildup of carbon dioxide is normal—and expected—in fermented pickles.
