How long does tahini last?

I bought some tahini to make hummus. I am the only one in my family that eats hummas. I am wondering how long can I keep a jar of tahini in the fridge once it is open? Thanks

I think it keeps like peanut butter - for a long time.

yeah, it`s pretty much the same as peanut butter in that respect, I keep mine in the fridge too, but it never lasts long enough to go bad :)

You can keep it for a long time. My in laws keep it in the pantry (they are Lebanese so use it a lot) and it seems to last for ages. :) I've had mine for nearly 6 months now and it seems fine to me still. It's been outside. Enjoy the hummus!

Nope they don't refrigerate it. It sits in the pantry all year round. They do use it a lot since they are Arabs. I've had mine for 6 months and it's perfectly fine outside.
