I am filling my final Wilton class 1 cake with Polaner's brand seedless raspberry jam and am wondering if this requires refrigeration? I'll be crumb coating/frosting with crusting buttercream. TIA!! icon_smile.gif

There are some brands of fruit fillings that do not require refrigeration, but Polaner All Fruit does require refrigeration after opening the jar.

Thank you so much jmr531~ I checked your response just in time. I prefer not to refrigerate so I won't use the Polaners. Does anybody know which brand(s) do not require refrigeration? I'd love to know for future reference.

I heard that the only reason jams and jellies say to refrigerate after opening is because they expect you to use a knife that gets dirty with butter and whatnot to get jam out. The stuff that gets left behind wouldn't mix well with the sugars and spoil or something. But that's just what I've heard.

The sleeve fillings do not require refrigeration. Here is a link I picked up from another thread.
