How should this be stored and how long can It be stored?

Hi Anna! We (fortunately 😉 ) did not have to store this recipe because we ate it all right away. But, due to having no preservatives, meat and syrup in it, we would recommend snacking on it right away or within a few days of making this recipe. As for storing, we would recommend keeping it in a sealed container or zip lock bag. Please let us know if you have anymore questions and how you like it!
