how long to keep condiments?

sophia519 | Oct 8, 2007 07:09 PM

In cleaning out my refrigerator this weekend, I was confused about how long to keep certain items that have been opened. I usually err on the side of caution, but am wondering if anyone has any wisdom about things such as salad dressings, mustard, pickles, taco sauce, etc. It may be well before the expiration date, but if the item has been opened, isn't the standard different? My rule of thumb is usually if I can't remember opening it, it's too old (except pickled things).
