    Peg is right, hot sauce will last a long time. I have several bottles in the fridge, none have best by dates.

    If you ever want to try another local hot sauce, check out Aruba Heat. Our friend on the island, Michel makes it and it's available all around the island.

    Here is a copy of an article that Rona did on him, when he was introducing his latest product, RUCU.

    "Last year with the closing of the border to Venezuela some Chinese-market owner asked Michel Frank, Managing Director, Aruba Heat, maker of island style hot sauces from mild to wild, if he could concoct RUCU in his kitchen, customers were asking for it, but the product disappeared off shelves, when the banana boats stopped coming.
    Frank then remembered his Aruban grandmother, a traditional cook — some of you blessed with a grandmother may also remember — how she use Annatto or Achiote seeds to color cooking oil, then made delicious red/orange-hued dishes with it.
    Annatto adds great color, and a pleasant flavor; it lends itself to everything from soup to nuts.
    Frank started experimenting, and came up with a satisfying recipe including onions, garlic, cilantro, and tomato, his own version of Rucu, which he launched on July 1st. It has been gaining popularity. I recently gave it as a gift to a friend who likes to cook, and I am waiting for his verdict, meanwhile I love it.
    It makes pumpkin soups look prettier, and it is great in lentils.
    Basically, it can be added to pots while cooking, or used as a sauce over roast chicken."

    That Tropical Heat Sauce sounds amazing. I bookmarked their site so I can look for it the next time we’re on the island.

    His website hasn't been updated, as it doesn't show all of his sauces. I believe there are 6 or 7 in total now.

    I did the same thing.

    I like trying hot sauces from time to time. Just have to be really careful because once in a while the heat can take me by surprise. I learned in a New Orleans sauce shop if it has a warning, just don't do it, even if it is just a tiny drop.

    I use hot sauce daily but do prefer to have a medium heat so it doesn’t overpower the other flavors. I did Hell Night at a Popular Boston spot where everything on the menu was hot. The ice cream (chocolate chipotle with fiery nuts) was amazing, sweet, creamy, salty, and flaming hot. Bet that ice cream would go over well in Aruba!
