Do you have a huge stash of soy sauce packets from Chinese food takeout in your kitchen drawer? Here's the good news: They are still good to use and enjoy, because soy sauce does not expire. While very old soy sauce may not be as fresh, these packets can still be used to make a marinade, add salty flavor to a savory dish and even give a little zest to a bowl of soup. The same tip also goes for mustard and vinegar packets, as these ingredients have a very long shelf life, too.
