    Default Prepared horseradish

    Does always-refrigerated prepared horseradish ever go bad -- the sort in
    the jar from the cold case at the grocery store? It's mostly used to
    make 'home made' cocktail sauce to use with boiled shrimp and the like.
    TIA

    The stuff preserved with bisulfite never goes bad, in my experience.
    The stuff without bisulfite can grow mold on it.

    Bad? As in spoiled so it will make you sick? I don't think so- at
    least not for a long time. But it loses a lot of its bite a week
    or so after being opened.

    Want good horseradish, but don't want to buy a jar every time? Buy
    [or beg from most any gardener] a few chunks of root. Peel & toss
    into the freezer. Grate directly onto sandwiches, into soups, or
    enough for one batch of cocktail sauce.

    Just freezing the store bought stuff might work, too. Just freeze it
    up in the portions you need for a batch of cocktail sauce.

    The stuff I buy is not sold refrigerated. However, it says pretty
    prominently to refrigerate after opening.

    I refrigerate all non-dry items after opening except peanut butter.
    All liquids, colloids, gels, sauces, etc.

    If it comes from the store refrigerated section, why would you think
    it didn't need refrigeration?

    In our experience all horseradish fades in heat after opening. The
    longer it has been open, the milder it gets.

    I've never had it "go bad" but it definitely loses its pungency even in
    the fridge.I do find myself using larger amounts as time goes by.

    It also turns a little brownish, which is when I toss it.

    I refrigerate peanut butter, but only because I buy the stuff that contains
    nothing but ground peanuts and salt. It tends to separate and I get tired
    of stirring the peanut oil back in before spreading it on toast

    Good question! The one time I went looking for horseradish, IIRC I asked
    here because I expected it to be in with other non-refrigerated condiments.
    I was told to look in the refrigerated section. Voila!

    That's true, too. So don't buy a big jar unless you're going to use it up
    quickly.

    I think it loses it's "zing" over time, but I've never had prepared
    horseradish go bad on me.

    I stuck a hunk of ginger in the freezer to do just that and I'll be
    darned if I know what corner it's hiding in.

    I put things like that in the freezer door so I can find them again.
    Opened bags of veggies/fruits/nuts, ginger, my stock bag, cardamom and
    saffron all go in the freezer door racks.

    I lost those shelves in the door when I got a refrigerator with a
    bottom freezer. Not that I mind. I prefer my freezer on the bottom.
    It has a shelf that rolls out and a removable bottom basket. It's
    just that they are both open weave and things like a little piece of
    ginger tends to either get lost or fall through the cracks.

    When we put in the new bottom freezer unit during our remodel we
    relegated our old fridge out to the garage for beer, etc. We took
    freezer icecube box and door compartment boxes and just use them in the
    new bottom freezer to help organize small things. My bottom freezer has
    three pull out wire shelves and one is dedicated to my spice jars which
    sit very nicely in the old ice bin.

    When storing different food items in the freezer, it's helpful to use
    various sizes of larger plastic containers (with or without tops/lids,
    akin to pull-out cabinet drawers) to combine like-items of foods
    together in the same 'bin', so to speak. IME, it's easier to dig out
    the few container bins than it is many individual items!

    In our deep freeze, we use racks, baskets and milk crates to make it
    easier to move and find things.

    i'll often put, say, several pork cutlets (cut from a loin) together in a
    plastic bag after wrapping them individually to make them easier to find.

    I've never had it go bad but it will lose some of its bite.
