I made a hot sauce recipe using tomato sauce and various spices and seasonings. I keep the hot sauce in a sealed plastic container in the fridge for storage. My problem is that after a week or more, the hot sauce starts to thicken almost like jello while it's in the fridge. I don't know why it would start to solidify since it started out as liquid. Here's the recipe so maybe someone can tell me why it's doing this and how to fix it. Thanks.
Three 8oz cans of Hunt's Tomato Sauce
1/2 cup of Water
1 TBL Black Pepper
1 TBL Chili Powder
1/2 TBL Garlic Powder
1/2 TBL Onion Powder
1 TSP Ground Cayenne Red Pepper
1 TSP Crushed Red Pepper
1/2 TSP Ground Coriander Powder
1/2 TSP Ground Cumin Seed
1/2 TSP Ground Oregano
1/4 TSP Salt
1/4 TSP Sugar
I just mix everything together and store it in the fridge to keep.
