Should Ketchup or Catsup (if you like) be refrigerated after opening?
Over the years, I've run into too many people who disagree on this. I've always been told to put it in the fridge, but several people have told me that is weird. I'd like to see what Hubbers say about this...
On bottles of ketchup it does say to refrigerate after opening however I remember as a child we never kept our ketchup in the refrigerator.
Putting the Ketchup and Mustard in the refrigerator down here in SC! They probably both have enough preservatives to make them okay in the pantry, though! My mom doesn't put either in the fridge, and I think hers taste "yucky." Seems like outside of the fridge, the top layer gets kind of brown and crusty, too! Better safe than sorry is my motto.
All food should be kept refrigerated. Unless it is salt or perhaps honey, most food have the possibility of containing bacteria that can cause food poisoning.

I would like to help, if I can, to answer an age old question! Do you keep your ketchup in the fridge or the cupboard?! I'm going to be brave and start off the votes with...cupboard!

Challenge! What can you put on bread that...1.) Tastes good.2.) Does not require a refrigerator before or after opening.3.) Can be found at your local grocery store.So far, I've come up with peanut butter, honey, and bacon bits. Any other ideas?

Do you get up in the middle of the night and raid the refrigerator?I don't, but after a late night out, I might sneak a snack before going to bed.I've heard that some people "sleep eat" not even realizing they've done it the next morning.
