Does worchestershire sauce go bad?

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 
I have a bottle in my cupboard thats about 5 years old. Its unopened. Can I still use it?

Shake the bottle up really good open it and put a drop or two on your finger.If it tastes or smells bad toss it.

Sealed it should be ok cause its fermented

Unopened it should be fine.....even opened it would probably be fine, since it has a fair amount of acid.......

I am just wondering how you can have a bottle of what's this here sauce for five years......I go thru one in about a month.............

sell by date?

Sell by dates are GREATLY over blown, especially on something like this......there was recently an article or broadcast talking about that somewhere (I forget exactly where), and WAY too much perfectly good food gets tossed cause of the silly sell by dates.......

Most canned/jarred items have a "best if used by" date, but even those have years of cushion factored in.

In an unopened sealed jar? Me thinks not.....................would you ask the same question of Scotch?
post #13 of 46
Are there no oxygenated compounds or carboxylic acids in the bottle? Air is not the only source of oxygen!

And yes, the flavor of Scotch, wine, etc., changes over time in a sealed environment!

See, ya fell into the trap.....tongue.gif. If ya bought a ten year old bottle of Scotch (or Cognac or Brandy or whatever) in 1990 and opened it today, it is STILL just a ten year old bottle of Scotch (even though it is now 31 years old), cause Scotch only "ages" when it is in the barrel. Once it is put in a glass bottle and sealed, it "ages" no more..............if ya don't believe me, look it up..............wink.gif
