    Do you keep opened jams/sauces/condiments in the fridge? 3rd Apr 07 at 8:07 PM
    Following on from my quest to find room for veg now I have a smaller fridge I am now looking at ways to reduce how many bottles of sauces/ketchups etc we have in there.

    So far I have decided that since we rarely have chicken/turkey as a roast dinner except at Xmas, it is pointless keeping cranberry sauce from one year to next, so in future it will be used up just into the New Year.

    Only Mr Spendless likes mustard, so why do I keep a huge jar of that in the fridge :confused: . Occassionally we add relishes to sandwiches but it's not a regular thing. Years ago when I used to shop at Morrisons they used to sell tiny jars of different pickles/sauces/mustards etc, do they still? If they do I thought of getting some (like mustard, tomato relish) and storing them in a cupboard and using them when we need them. Know they work out more expensive, but I need the space in the fridge for things we eat more often.

    DH says his parents never keep things like ketchup in fridge, but on label it says you need to once opened, do you?

    I've also got in there, the following jars all opened, HP sauce (only DH likes this:rolleyes: ), apple sauce, prawn cocktail sauce (def think you'll have to keep these in fridge), mint sauce (don't know about this and label ripped off), 2 jams and a marmalade in fridge. Do I need to keep all this in there?

    Some help much needed please.
