Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Periodic Table of Condiments:


Tim, French dressing is a variant of vinaigrette. It would have been clearer if they had added "dressing" or something to the end, though.

Majeanne, examples of honey preservation for decades are not disputed, but the very ancient examples of edible honey are just residues left over in their containers. Additionally, honey used for preservation only lasts as long as it does because it is kept hermetically sealed in proper conditions. If it is exposed to oxygen and moisture, even honey isn't magical enough to not go bad after a relatively short amount of time. The National Honey Board says that a practical shelf life for honey is about 2 years (http://www.honey.com/consumers/honeyinfo/faq.asp?ItemID=53), but the 8 month figure may be for honey that has been opened already.

#48 - French is good for only two months?

Mon Dieu, I keep my French much longer than that...

(What the heck is 'French' supposed to be anyway?)

I suspect this was put together with funding from the condiments industry. They've found edible honey that was thousands of years old. And that was just in my cupboard.

Ooh...a bachelor's must-have. Affix it to a fridge magnet and I'm there. Life expectancy of Cheez Whiz, Baco Bits and Tabasco?

Inquiring minds want to know.
