    This is what our Registered Dietitian suggests: The marinade will last for 3 days in the fridge, but it freezes well too. If you need it to last longer than 3 days, freeze immediately and use as needed. I like to freeze my marinades in an ice cube tray so I can use as little or as much as I want at one time.

    how long does this sauce last in the fridge?

    Better still, can one freeze it?

    Many thanks.
