    Last week I figured I'd cook my own chili at home rather than spend at the Mexican restaurant.

    Bad idea. That's all I'm gonna say. :eusa_silenced:

    Believe it or not, the Association for Dressings and Sauces states commercial mayonaise is shelf stable after opening...that refrigeration is for quality...not safety.



    Q. What happens if I leave mayonnaise unrefrigerated for a long period of time?

    A. From a food safety standpoint, commercial mayonnaise and mayonnaise-type dressings are perfectly stable when stored at room temperature after opening. Quality (e.g., flavor, taste, aroma), not safety, is the only reason the labels on these products suggest that they be refrigerated after opening. Refrigeration ensures that the commercial mayonnaise keeps its fresh flavor for a longer period of time. Please review the product's label for more information on storage and shelf life.

    I've read this before, but it's just to ingrained to break the conditioning.

    I do have UPS backup here in case of power failure. Not sure it would run a refrigerator, but come to think of it the only time we have power outages here is in winter so it's not an issue.

    That makes sense. I've never seen mayonnaise spoil. "Refrigerate after opening" is often more a suggestion than a safety rule.
