I ask because I refrigerate so many things that don't require it. It stems from growing up with family members that let everything sit out for hours. You know....like big roasts sitting out for hours, butter left out for days, meats thawing on the counter etc etc.
Sooooo, I refrigerate the syrup. LOL
Gabe's parents came to visit and I found my syrup in the cabinet. I stared at it for a moment and thought hmmm. Gabe says Sara it's sugar and water...it doesn't need to be in the refrigerator. LOL
Guess where it is? hehe
Sara in your home ya do with it what you want!
I grew up in one of those "clean everything as soon as you leave the table families". I am not quite that diligent, but then I don't have 6 kids doing it for me either, its just me so I take my time, I do put the food away right away though.
Yes we put it in the fridge, just because my husband likes it cold. I always pour some in a bowl and warm it in the microwave, because I don't like it cold. But growing up, it was kept in the cupboard.
I always used to put it in the refrigerator until one day (after 5 years of marriage) dh said to me, "What the hell is up with the syrup in the fridge? It goes in the pantry!" I always did it because that's where it was growing up. Now, it's in the pantry.
I keep mine in the refrigerator too Sara, my Mother kept hers there so I just naturally kept mine there too. I keep my mustard and ketchup in the fridge too and all my jellies, I guess basically I put all condiments in there. It does make DH crazy too, he also thinks that syrup goes in the pantry.
Michelle, you made me get off my chair to check the label to see if it did say that or not (i had no clue! lol) It says in bold NEEDS NO REFRIDGERATION Not that it matters of course
I remember I was so shocked, when I saw my little old lady i took care of, keeping her ketchup and mustard and even mayo in the pantry! OPENED! I guess she said it was cool in there but still, wow! I thought my brain was going to implode at the thought alone
Okay, this probably sounds a bit odd. We keep the syrup in the pantry from October to April, and in the fridge from May to September. We do this with quite a lot of things even cereal. I'm allergic to having ants in my kitchen.
