Anyone know? I'm clueless about sauces that do/don't need to be refrigerated.
I don't know if it has to be, but we do. We don't use it fast enough to store it on the shelf.
We refrigerate ours once opened, but I tend to "refrigerate when in doubt".
I'm 90% certain it should be refrigerated.
My bottle doesn't say anywhere to refrigerate after opening. My guess is that there's enough salt in it that it won't go bad quickly.
I have never refrigerated mine, and it's always been fine. But, most of the time that I use it, I use it in something that is being baked or grilled.
I don't refrigerate mine, and it's been in my pantry for ages.
Ditto Ann .
I don't refrigerate mine either.
Ditto Ann and Annie...Mom never did, I never have...never gotten sick either...
I don't refrigerate it either.
Interesting - I've always refrigerated mine, but now I'm thinking I don't have to, and can free up some valuable refrigerator real estate!
What about Soy Sauce? Would that be the same thing?
So many of those condiments have so much vinegar and salt that they're perfectly fine in the cupboard unless they specifically state to refrigerate. Heck, I didn't even keep ketchup in the fridge until this last bottle I bought indicated "refrigerate after opening" on the label.
never refrigerated soy sauce either
Becky, my soy sauce is in the cupboard, too. Right next to the Worchestershire, actually.
mine are hanging out together too
I have always refriged mine. I have never thought about it though. My mom does and I followed her.
I have one in the fridge and one in the pantry next to my soy sauce
depends on who uses it as to where it goes
Recently I couldn't find my soy sauce in the pantry, so I looked in the fridge and there it was. So, I read the label and discovered "refrigerate after opening". Well, for 30+ years I have been storing it unrefrigerated. I tried refrigerating it after reading the label, but, honestly, I prefer it unrefrigerated.
I never would have given it a thought to NOT refrigerate it. I've been doing it for 35 years, and my mom did before me. I suppose I should read labels more often.
