    Small jar, covered with oil.

    I buy them in jars that way. The jars seem to be milder and
    higher quality than the cans.

    What's the theory of the fillets wrapped around capers? Are these
    supposed to be eaten that way? I do rinse and eat them that way
    occasionally.

    Glass jar in the refrigerator, for up to four days.

    In short, yes. It's purely a matter of tradition. It started in Sicily,
    made it's way to Italy, then on to your local supermarket shelves.

    It's really a pretty good combination though. I eat them right
    out of the can.

    Thanks, Steve. I was hoping for longer or the possibility of
    freezing them. It's highly doubtful I'll use them up in 4 days. :-(

    I bought them to use on half of a large pizza, as I'm the only one
    who eats them in our house. Maybe I could use some in a quasi Caesar
    salad or make some Green Goddess dressing.

    My anchovies have been in the jar in the fridge for over a year.
    And I just ate one after I read your post the first time. They're
    just fine.

    Of course they came in the jar in the first place, but I don't see
    why taking them out of a can and transferring them to a jar would
    matter one bit. All that salt, how can they go bad?

    I always buy anchovies in the jar rather than the can.

    Nostalgic elaboration. My mother decades ago would make up
    a fairly bland egg salad, incorporating a bit of dill pickle relish, and
    put a tablespoon or so on a Ritz cracker, topping it with one of
    those wonderful rolled anchovies around capers. They went so well
    in any social gathering that I rarely had the chance of grabbing enough,
    and there were never leftovers. To me at the time (and still) the ideal
    canapé. I still make a lunch on them, with a touch of cayenne or
    Penzeys Black and Red pepper. Oh yum.

    Yeah, I try not to open a tin of anchovies unless I have a plan
    for consuming both halves of it.

    "Quasi Caesar" is a good idea. In my case, this means a romaine
    salad with a vinagerette dressing to which I've added chopped
    anchovies, and a few intact anchovies on top. I find I really
    do not miss the egg too much.

    That's pretty much the way I make it, Steve. I also shave fresh
    parmesan over it and make some garlic croutons.

    Give the nasty things to the cats. On second thought, that much salt
    wouldn't be good for the cats either. <G>

    According to <http://www.stilltasty.com/fooditems/index/18769>, they'll
    keep for 1-2 months in the refrigerator or maintain best quality for 3
    months in the freezer.

    <http://groups.google.com/group/rec.food.cooking/browse_frm/thread/56b1b50d89731ca4/07a7710cebba0a57>
    contains a short discussion of freezing.

    Several sources suggest that to refrigerate them successfully you need
    to transfer them to a sealable container and add more oil if necessary
    to keep them completely covered with it.

    <http://www.napoleon-co.com/pages/product_pages/anchovies.html> has an
    interesting discussion of preservation methods for anchovies that you
    might find helpful.

    Makes sense.

    Me, they are a convenience food so if I have to cough up
    more oil than is already there to store them (debatable)
    then they lose their convenience.

    I go mainly with a 4 day rule as that is my standard
    rule for any opened tin of anything. Don't have time
    to sort out which products are okay open longer.

    There's no reason you couldn't put them in the freezer....though I'd
    put them in a small jar with a bit more oil first.
