How long should they be in the jars before it can be opened? I want to give this as a gift and I need to make sure I have enough time to make it. Thank you

Thanks! I am in the process of making it now. I have read other recipes and they always say it has to be sealed for at least 30 days or so but I think they were mostly homemade wine recipes so maybe that is why you need to let them set for so long. Thanks again!

@ Cristy....I've made this numerous times, and you can drink it right away if you want. I've just found that the longer it sits, the better the flavor and potency.

Does the shine need be refrigerated after canned?

No, I store it in the pantry. It is good fresh but I like it better after sitting for about 1 month.

Does the jars of shine have to be heated in order to have the Mason lids snap secure? or does it matter in this case? Thanks!
