I'm glad to hear about the Worcester sauce. I think my bottle has survived 3 moves.

If you don't use Worcestershire sauce on a regular basis, you're doing something wrong in your kitchen.

Original Tabasco scoffs at your puny 12-year shelf-life. When two of your three ingredients are preservatives, ain't even Keith Richards gonna outlive it.

Vinegar - only six months after opened?  Unless you are suggesting it has been sitting open for six months and it has all evaporated, just how is vinegar supposed to go bad?

Yeah, that's not right. It depends on the type of vinegar if/when it expires, and white vinegar lasts practically forever as long as it's capped and not keep in an overly hot or cold place for too long.

I know the internal organs will turn first, so I usually eat them right away and just pickle the limbs so they can be saved for later.

But the skull and contents will last a long time.

Then again, I never keep it around long enough to know when it would go bad.

Plus, my pantry is small, so I can only fit about one and a half bodies in there at a time anyway.

And that's why there were only heads found in Jeffrey Dahmer's fridge.

I go through a bottle of Worcester, a bottle of horseradish, and a bottle of celery salt every couple of months.

How do you people make Bloody Marys?

1) Find non-pregnant Mary
2) Wait up to 1 month

Mustard only lasts a year in the fridge?  I've got to disagree with that.  And who buys it in a can?

I thought ketchup, being vinegar based, lasted a lot longer than that.  The ketchup in my fridge is my cite.

If you keep ketchup in your house you deserve food poisoning.

Long enough for things to happen and stuff to occur. Shorter if alcohol is involved.

Angela Lansbury's Merkin: Mustard only lasts a year in the fridge?  I've got to disagree with that.  And who buys it in a can?


Traditionally, it's sold in cans or jars so it can be spread on things with a knife (as opposed to ketchup, which is sold in bottles so you can pour it on stuff you eat).

The reason is that older mustard recipes is mildly toxic, so it's not meant to be glopped on food, but spread finely with the knife. Of course, nowadays, that stuff is mostly artificial and with the advent of the squeeze bottle, the can/jar is no longer the preferred mustard delivery system.

Sometimes I take photos of product labels then post them in places where I hope google will find them for me later. Sometimes this results in Google Goggle behaving like an idiot.

How long will the following products last (in my freezer)? (I took these today, they are the same product label, and no photoshopping or any sort of alteration was done.)
