When you head to the store to stock up on groceries, you want them to last! That’s only normal, and no one sets out to deter the preservation process of certain foods, so we do what we think is best. We put certain items in the refrigerator to help keep them “alive” longer. Here’s the kicker though, those foods we kept throwing in the refrigerator actually did the opposite – it caused rotting, ruined the taste and freshness, and ended up in the garbage, uneaten. Take a close look at this list and leave these specific foods out of the fridge!
Here’s the thing about apples, they already last about a week or two when kept at room temperature. When kept at room temperature, the enzymes within become far more active, that’s why they’re so nutritional. Keep in mind that if you place apples next to other fruits, they can ripen quicker as apples give off a certain gas. If you were given a holiday gift baskets filled with fruits then its best you don’t store it in the fridge!
When you have avocados that are not ripe, the refrigerator is not the place for them! If they wind up in the fridge somehow, they will only ripen slower, like snail slow. Instead, they need to remain on a cool and dry surface, like the counter.
