It's the same as with most canned goods, 2-3 years.

MMM I use to make this every year. Most of the apple trees had frost this year. I'll have to see if I can get apples at a good enough price to can it this year. I didn't just use it for a pie filling, but for other deserts as well. I loved the stuff.
