Homemade bbq sauce and refrigeration.

I absolutely love this sauce. If you've never tried it you should.

Anyway, my question is this.. I made this sauce in a large quantity and put it in some mason jars I got at Walmart. Do I have to refrigerate these jars or can I keep the sauce in my pantry?

  1. I'm no preservation expert, but I'd guess that with the amount of vinegar in that sauce, it'd be fine on the shelf after water bath canning.

      Thanks for your reply. I went ahead and put it in the fridge since it had butter in it.
