How do I store the glass jars of maple cream? Will it go bad?
Maple Cream is not heat-sealed when it is packaged, so it should be kept in the fridge for immediate use. For longer-term storage, keep it in the freezer. It will last for a very long time, and as long as there is no mold it is good to go! If the cream separates during storage, simply stir it back together. It is okay to take the Rise Packets with you for several day adventures and can be put right back in the fridge afterward.
