How Long Can You Keep Thanksgiving Leftovers?
Thanksgiving is a food fest and leftovers are sometimes the best part, but they aren't good forever... to keep from getting sick...here is a list of the most popular leftovers and how long you can keep them:
1. Turkey, 3 to 4 days max.
2. Homemade gravy. A day or two.
3. Stuffing, 3 to 4 days.
4. Mashed potatoes, 3 to 5 days. Also for green bean casserole.
5. Pumpkin pie and Apple Pie, 3 to 4 days.
6. Cranberry sauce DOES keep for a while. The sugar acts as a preservative, so you can leave it in the fridge up to two weeks.
Editors note: Unfortunately fruitcake lasts almost forever....especially when used as a paperweight or doorstop.
