Tomato Sauce. ALWAYS goes in the cupboard. NEVER the fridge! Why do people want to put cold sauce on their hot chips or steak or whatever

Darling Husband keeps putting the syrup in the fridge and it drives me crazy.  He also always want to through out perfectly good ketchup if it isn’t in the fridge. Drives me crazy.  Why would you want cold condiments on your hot food?

Darling Husband puts honey in the fridge and then wonders why it’s hard.

basically if it was on the shelf when I bought it, it stays on the shelf until I open it. The only exception I can think of is butter.

Darling Husband puts bread in the fridge automatically. Grrrr >_<

@Pokemon:  tomato sauce, is that what we call ketchup here in the US?

I leave my peanut butter in the fridge but it stays soft (its the natural kind).

FH likes to put everything in the fridge, cookies, crackers, any kind of bread, fruit, sauce. Our fridge is always jam packed. He didn’t realize that honey didn’t/couldn’t go in there.

My husband puts all candy in the fridge.  Wtf?  A rock hard snickers bar that practically chips a tooth when I bite into is not fun.

Tomato Sauce (aka Red Sauce right?) = Ketchup / Catsup in North America

Tomato Sauce in North America = Spaghetti Sauce

Lol, interesting topic…

But I honestly think some of you should be reading your labels… and minding that bit that says REFRIGERATE AFTER OPENING

I get that no one particularly likes ice cold condiments… but the truth is that a lot of things will go bad / could be harmful if they aren’t stored properly / refrigerated when required (Salsa would make that list)

Others won’t necessary go bad right off… but they certainly will break down over time in regards to quality and eventually taste off for sure.  (Such as Maple Syrup which can get mouldy)

* If the temperature right out of the fridge isn’t to your liking you can always nuke em for a couple of seconds… or put em in a bowl immersed in a “hot water bath” that will bring things up to a moderate temp pretty quickly as well

@tksjewelry:  Why?!  The only reason I would ever put a piece of candy in the freezer would be if I wanted to suffer the agony of waiting for it to defrost so I can eat, and hopefully lose my interest for it in the meantime.  Ha!

usually once something is opened, it goes in the fridge with the exception of peanut butter. 

jams, salsa, condiments in general all must go in the fridge.  they will spoil.

We put anything in the refrigerator that says “refrigerate after opening”, that includes ketchup, jam, preserves, jelly, mayonnaise, lemon curd, and salsa. Some syrups say it, so the ones that do, go in the refrigerator.  

We put bread in the refrigerator in the summer because it tends to mold too quickly otherwise. 

I’d prefer it if I didn’t have to put our eggs in the refrigerator, but since they are washed and refrigerated at the store, we don’t have a choice. If I got them fresh and unwashed, they’d be in a basket out on the counter.

Peanut butter and nutella go in the cupboard.
