Hello, hoping to be guided by stangers on the Internet as to whether the best before date matters on a M&S winter berry chutney that I just found in the cupboard. Best before end of September? Thanks!

It’ll be absolutely fine.

If it smells & tastes ok I'd eat it. Lots of sugar & salt preserve well.

Best before isn't the same as use by. Chutney lasts for ages and will be fine. Give it the smell and taste test.

Currently eating home made jam made 5 years ago. If it looks & smells OK - no worries!

It’s fine. It’s a preserve.

I've just finished one that was 10 years out of date. I'm not dead yet !

Thanks all. When I looked again it was September 2016 not 2018!! It was crammed at the back of the cupboard, spring cleaning has unearthed it.
l will open it tonight with some nice 🧀 and if it seems okay will go for it. If not I'll still have the cheese.

Chutney and jam last for ages unopened.
