3. Beef Jerky

Although beef jerky is made of meat, most of the moisture is removed. The United States Department of Agriculture states that beef jerky that has been commercially packaged can be kept up to 12 months. After a package of jerky has been opened it will stay good at room temperature for about a week.

2. Soy Sauce

Soy sauce is fermented and does not need refrigeration. Although most bottles will say to refrigerate after opening many brands have enough salt to keep it preserved while on the counter for months. The exception may be the low sodium brands.
