The fridge appeared in our lives and we are all so thankful for it. Food can be kept longer, your juices and water always fresh and you don’t have to go shopping so often, do you?
But you will be surprised about some of the things you should never, ever, use the fridge for. They will last less longer. And believe it or not, the majority of people throw everything (literally everything) in the fridge.
Are you ready?
- Whole melons Watermelons lose some of their antioxidant content when refrigerated. Leave whole melons on the couter at room temperature to maintain these antioxidants. Note: Sliced melon should be covered and put in the fridge
- Potatoes Spuds should be given a dark, cool and dry space. Remove potatoes from their plastic or paper bags, and keep them unwashed in a well-ventilated cardboard box.
- Whole tomatoes Tomatoes will lose all their flavor and their texture in the fridge. Keep tomatoes out in a bowl or basket on the counter.
- Coffee Ground coffee and beans need airtight containers and a cool, dry and dark spot to retain their flavour and freshness. Freeze large amounts that won’t be used immediately. Wrap it in airtight bags, and store it for up to a month in the freezer.
- Pumpkin This requires a well-ventilated location that’s also dry, dark and cool such as the basemen
- Honey It should be kept in a tightly closed container at room temperature in a dry place. Refrigerating it can cause crystallization, making it hard to spread. Honey will store in your cupboard for an indefinite period of time.
- Onions Store unpeeled onions in a cool, dry, well-ventilated location. If peeled you can store inside the fridge in a container.
- Basil (and most fresh herbs) will wilt faster if left in the fridge, and it will also absorb all the smells of the food around it. It’s better to keep it out, sitting in a cup of fresh water
- Bread You refrigerator will dry out your bread quickly. Unless it’s sliced sandwich bread that you intend to use within a few days, keep bread out on the counter or in the freezer.
How about that?
