Thanksgiving is a food fest and leftovers are sometimes the best part, but they aren't good forever... to keep from getting is a list of the most popular leftovers and how long you can keep them:

1.  Turkey, 3 to 4 days max.

2.  Homemade gravy.  A day or two.

3.  Stuffing, 3 to 4 days.

4.  Mashed potatoes, 3 to 5 days. Also for green bean casserole.

5.  Pumpkin pie and Apple Pie, 3 to 4 days.

6.  Cranberry sauce DOES keep for a while.  The sugar acts as a preservative, so you can leave it in the fridge up to two weeks.

Editors note: Unfortunately fruitcake lasts almost forever....especially when used as a paperweight or doorstop.
