groceries

Some of them could surprise you. Though most people have the habit of practically everything they buy in the store (and edible) to keep in the fridge, and most often to extend the life of groceries, some foods should be kept as far away from it as possible.

Tomatoes

The temperature in the fridge is too low for tomatoes and their ripening is hindered, resulting in a worse taste.

Bananas

However, for this fruit, the rule of (not) keeping in the fridge depends solely on the degree of maturity of the banana. If bananas are old, store them freely in the refrigerator to keep them fresh. However, if they are still not old then prefer to keep them in the bowl on the table. Otherwise, they may never become good enough.

Potato

By storing the potatoes in the refrigerator it loses starch and gives a sweet taste. No matter how you plan to prepare it, it may happen that you do not taste it.

Onion

It’s a story like tomatoes. By staying in the fridge, the onion becomes glassy, and on its surface, you can see the mould. If you save the cut on the refrigerator, it will dry. Besides, all your food could have the scent of the port.

Garlic

Although garlic can look very fresh for a long time, if you keep it in the fridge, it will get a lot faster and dry, and you could only figure it out when you cut it to add it to your favourite dish.

Avocado
Just as with banana, the refrigerator could stop the saturation of avocado. And you know how hard it is to find avocado that does not overcook, and yet it’s ripe enough to eat …

Bread

By putting the bread in the refrigerator, instead of keeping it as long as you are fresh, you will do precisely the opposite. Due to the crystallisation of starch, your bread will become tough, and stem and even the mildew could settle on it.
