Bagels arrive ready to enjoy. If you will not be serving them within a day, bagels should be frozen immediately to preserve freshness. Refrigerate all bagel accoutrements until use (lox, whitefish salad, etc).
To maximize the shelf life, keep refrigerated and tightly wrapped in plastic or aluminum wrap. Properly stored, lox will last for about 5 to 8 days in the refrigerator.
Keep refrigerated for up to 5 days.
