    I think it will only be good for about 7 days in the fridge.

    You can try to pour the remainder into a small container and freeze it. Not sure how it would be once thawed, though.

    Or, if this is sweetened condensed milk, I'd say to just get a spoon out and eat what you don't need for whatever recipe. Yumm.

    It will not last 2 years opened. Mainly because it will evaporate down to pure sugar and milk solids. It will not easily spoil because of the extremely high sugar content but the evaporation will cause it to be unusable for most recipes

    for $1-$2 per can, why worry about it. If you don't want to waste it, make some key lime pie today
