Does hot sauce go bad? My mom has a bottle that went out of date over a year and a half ago, and she insists "hot sauce doesn't expire"

It's fine. Hot sauce really doesn't expire because the main ingredients are vinegar, salt, and hot peppers (capscacsin) which are all anti-bacterial by nature.

>> No.13812948

sauce in general gets better with age

Why yes I do have a large collection of hot sauce, what gave that away?

Frank's is fermented cayenne peppers blended in vinegar
I think you'll be fine

>> No.13813095

I threw out a bottle of Franks recently, but it was probably 5 years old and had turned brown and crusty.

>> No.13813097

thats impossible. because of the antibiotics.

Depends on where it's stored. If it's stored in the fridge then it'll last a pretty long time, if in some warm place then it'll expire and loose any flavor, especially vinegar based sauces.

>> No.13813229

Not bad as in bad for you (low pH = nothing bad can grow), but it might taste bad.

>> No.13814390

It won't go bad
It will go stale or even rancid

>> No.13814399

YES. I've visited several homes where upon inquiring about their hot sauce situation I was subsequently greeted by an ancient bottle of Tabasco that had gone completely brown.

>> No.13814409

All hot sauce needs to be refrigerated cooklet

>> No.13814457

depends the hot sauce and how long we're talking
I've seen disgusting 5+ years old bottles found stuck to the back of fridges, i wouldn't touch that
but if we're talking one year? you're fine
keep in mind this applies to vinegar based hot sauces, other ones are more at risk of expiring

salt vinegar and chilis are all preservatives. so dont worry. just like prepared mustard is all preservatives: mustard seed salt vinegar. mustard is used to pack wounds to stop infection. guess you could do that with chili paste...

that sounds painful

>> No.13814531

It will be fine. However if you hear a hiss or pop when opening it that means it somehow started fermenting again. If that happens stick the bottles in some boiling water for a little bit and it will stop it.

>> No.13814575

Yes it does. 5 years ago I was at. A family members house and asked for hot sauce. They gave me some and then after I doused my food with it I looked at the bottle and some form of bacteria or mold had created a quarter sized greenish yellowish culture that was clinging to the bottle

Yes it goes bad, it’s vinegar it’s spoiled alcohol.

>> No.13814581

Chili’s aren’t fucking preservatives you mom science mong

>> No.13814596

It is, but then so is antiseptic.
