    Frozen, because of it's high content of proteins.
    If you store it at room temps it will start to decay after one hour, in the fridge after 24hrs.
    The bees can take care for it for 5 days but we humans are not able to keep it on such temps more than 1hr.
    It will be infested by all kinds of bacteria and fungus you ccn imagine (or not )so best way is to freeze it immediately.
    Another way is to mix it into honey which will preserve it because of the high sugar content like jam or marmelade.

    "Ordinary refrigeration at 2º will preserve it for up to a year, although some of the organic acids tend to crystallize. If kept in a deep-freeze at -18º royal jelly shows little deterioration for periods up to several years. Fresh royal jell which has been lyophilized (freeze-dried under vacuum) may be stored as a dry powder for years, with very little apparent loss of biological activity."
