Home canned goods can last from 12 to 18 months as long as they have not been subjected to extreme heat or cold and seals have not broken.

Shelf stable canned products depends if they are soups, gravies, beans carrots can last 2 to 5 years.

High acid juices, fruit, pickles, tomato soup, etc only 12 to 18 months
