Expiration & Storage Tips
When does Pecan Pie expire?
Homemade pecan pie will remain fresh for about 2 days at room temperature, and about a week in the fridge. Store-bought pecan pie (unopened) can last up to a week past the 'sell by' date if kept at room temperature. If refrigerated, expect a longer shelf-life of about 2 weeks past the sell-by date. Frozen pecan pie can keep for up to 3 months.
How do you tell if Pecan Pie is bad?
If it smells odd or sour, it's probably gone bad. Look for any signs of mold, notably fuzzy spots of white, blue or green. Also, check the crust for dryness or sogginess - both could indicate spoilage. Lastly, if you notice the pie filling starting to ooze liquid, it might be time to let it go.
Tips for storing Pecan Pie to extend shelf life
• Always cover your pecan pie - with a pie cover or plastic wrap if it's leftovers. • If you plan to consume the pie within 2 days, it's okay to leave it on the counter at room temperature. • For longer storage, keep the pie in the refrigerator. Store it in a pie carrier or wrap it in aluminum foil to prevent it from drying out. • When freezing, first let the pie cool completely, then wrap it tightly in a layer of plastic wrap followed by a layer of aluminum foil. To defrost, let it thaw overnight in the refrigerator. • Cut slices only when you're ready to eat them. The inner filling stays fresher when it's kept intact.
