Jelly from 2002, okay?

Did I leave the grape jelly from 2002 in the fruit cellar too long?

I opened one last week and it looked okay but I haven' tried it yet.

What was the seal like when you opened it?

If the lid was sealed, no indication of mold, and it smelled right, then it is okay.
Support bacteria. It's the only culture some people have.
