Yes I have done it quite often. Usually when I run out of wine bottles to put it in. I had no trouble with it keeping and have kept it over a year. No doubt some people will say no you should not do it. Good luck with it.

If you mean a vinegar-based, tomato ketchup type sauce, then yes I've done that many times in the past using plastic bottles. As with poster #2 it kept well for ages with no problems.

I have when I ran out of glass bottles. We couldn't use it. The spices must have reacted with the plastic. I do make rather "hot n spicy" sauces.

Thankyou for your replies. My recipe is very basic - tomatoes , vinegar, salt, pepper, sugar. Should be ok in plastic hopefully.
