I just "answered" (via comment) How long can coconut milk last in the fridge? with a quick link to StillTasty.com. I believe that comment fully answers the question—and all that information was found in under a minute with Google (given, I knew the correct terms to search for; the OP probably didn't).
Previously, closing "general reference" questions has been discussed here; see Should "general reference" questions be asked and answered here? By that flow chart, the question should be closed. Unfortunately, it seems that general reference as a close reason was rejected by the SE team.
So, instead, borrowing an idea that I've seen on Stack Overflow, I suggest we should have a single question, which we close almost all "shelf life of X" questions as duplicates of. It should cover:
- general guidelines for storage
- resources where shelf life of a particular product can be looked up
- tips on making storage more convenient (e.g., freezing in ice cube trays, soup in disposable coffee cups, etc.)
- links to detailed guides on particular methods of storage (e.g., link to the home caning guide)
If no one objects, I'll ask the question and start a community wiki answer for it tonight.
It's nowhere near done, but: How long can I store a food in the pantry, refrigerator, or freezer?
