Contrary to the belief that condiments can withstand the test of time and be good for a lifetime residing in your cabinet or refrigerator, they do in fact go rancid and as luck would have it, each condiment has a different shelf life. For the most popular condiment, ketchup, it’s good for one year from the date of purchase. An opened bottle is usually good for six months. Mustard, on the other hand, can last up to two years unopened in your pantry and once year after being opened. Mayonnaise shouldn’t get too comfortable in pantry for fridge. It will start to go bad three to six months if it’s in the pantry and only two months after being opened. BBQ sauce has about four months of life once opened. Worcestershire will last you about a year opened before it goes bad. Sriracha, Tabasco and other hot sauces should be used up within 6 months. Jams and jellies are good for six to 12 months once opened and relish can last up to 30 months unopened and 9 months once opened.
