I've got a great hot fudge sauce. I want to add a preservative. Something to keep out the nasties that like sweets, like mold & bacteria.

What should I use & how much? My limited knowledge has me guessing about 1-1/2 tsp sodium citrate to my 2 cups sugar & 1 cup cocoa...

Still not sure but I'll bet I'm close..

Well, Twisty, I'm guessing that our members, including me, might be as much at a loss as you are regarding this question.

Welcome to NCT - sorry I can't help with the hot fudge sauce preservative!

Sugar IS a preservative. With that much sugar, you shouldn't need any other chemicals.
If you want it to be shelf stable, process it in a water bath. Otherwise, just refrigerate it. It will last a year or more.

I use sodium citrate for spherification. It will add a salty taste to your food. I had never heard of it as a preservative.
