[YAKSON HOUSE] 10 FOODS YOU SHOULD NEVER KEEP IN THE FRIDGE






10 FOODS YOU SHOULD NEVER KEEP IN THE FRIDGE



When it comes to storing food properly
there are many conventions that some people swear by
 and others will argue 'til the end of time. 

Do you store bread in the fridge, freezer or in a bread box? 
Should you store tomatoes in the fridge or on your counter top?
Chances are you have mistakenly been storing 
some of these foods in your fridge.

Here are 10 foods you should not store in your fridge:





Tomatoes

Tomatoes will lose all their flavor in the fridge.
The cold temperature breaks down the membranes inside the fruit walls.
The fridge will also alter the texture of the tomato.
Keep tomatoes out in a bowl or basket on the counter.





Basil

Basil will wilt faster if left in the fridge, 
and it will also absorb all the smells of the food around it.

t's better to keep it out, 
sitting in a cup of fresh water, 
like cut flowers.




Potatoes

Keeping a potato in the cold temperature of your refrigerator
 will turn its starch into sugar more quickly.
Instead of putting potatoes in the fridge,
 store them in a paper bag in a cool-not cold-place.





Onions

If you put onions in the fridge, 
the moisture will eventually turn them soft and moldy.
 Keep them in a cool, dry place. 





Avocados

If you want avocados to ripen, 
definitely don't put them in the refrigerator. 

However, if you've bought an already-ripe avocado
 that you don't want to use right away, 
that can go in the fridge.





Garlic

Eventually, garlic will start to sprout in the fridge, 
and it may also get rubbery and moldy. 
You should instead keep garlic in a cool, dry place.





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. 






Olive Oil

You should store olive oil in a cool, dark place,
but not in the fridge,
where it will condense and turn to a harder,
almost butter-like consistency.




Coffee

If you leave coffee in the refrigerator,
it will lose its flavor and actually take on 
some of the odors in the fridge.

You should store coffee in a cool, dark place.




Honey

There is no need to store honey in the fridge.
Keeping honey in the refrigerator can cause it to crystallize.
