jenny et al, you need a bigger veggie gardens.

worcestershire sauce is not only great on tomatoes, but on most steamed or raw veggies, especially young peas, brussel sprouts, or zucchini.

it's also great with raw fish, as a change from soy and wasabi.

or as the marinade for jerked or grilled meats.

i kill a large bottle every summer and fall.

as i've recommended before, slice and marinate some raw tomatoes in worcestershire sauce. it's so good you be sucking up the seeds and sauce from the plate.

I kill a bottle or two every summer as well Bucky. I use it in marinades. I put it in my burgers. I love it on veggies. Great stuff.

Stephie, it will last almost forever.

I use it a lot but in smaller quantities, I guess. W-sauce and Soy sauce are "chef's secret" ingredients to bring out the umami in foods.

While I like W-sauce, I find that its assertive taste sort of drowns out others sometimes, which is why I don't use a whole lot of it. Caesar salad dressing for example -- a drop of two really makes the dressing but too much ruins it, IMO.

Bucky -- I did take up your suggestion about drizzling it on fresh garden tomatoes and wow . GOOD!

Yea, I think I have had my bottle for several years... I guess I am not using enough of it. And the tomato pairing sounds devine!! I must try this cuz I love tomatos!!!!

I have also noticed that xperiation dates are popping up on everything now... long gone the days when you thought stuff lasted forever!!!

Thank you so much for the replies, I appreciate it. The gallon is because it was given to me, however, I use it in just about everything. I just wanted to make sure that it was still fit for ingestion. :)

I think of it as one of those things that won't exactly "spoil" but its flavor depth will probably reduce -- much like old spices, I'd say.

I tend to have my bottles forever. Even worse, I made a mistake thinking I was buying a great, big, huge soy sauce recently (which I WOULD use up quickly) and it turned out to be a liter of Worchestershire sauce instead! Aaaargh!

I went on some web sites for expiration dates for WOR Sauce and even they can't agree. One said a year and another one said 5 years.

Considering, historically accurate or not, it took 2 years for Worcestershire to be "discovered" fermenting in a cellar and suddenly deemed to be delicious! (I love it myself) I wouldn't worry too much about it. I have a bottle of it that must be at least 2 years old; it got buried in the back of my pantry so I bought a new bottle. But the old bottle still tastes quite good.
