It’s very preferable that you should store the following five items out of the refrigerator.
You are mistaken if you think that absolutely all products enjoy low temperatures.
There’re those that don’t. Here are some of them:
Bananas are full of vitamins and minerals. They are nutritious and it’s a shame to find out that the food is losing its best properties simply because you do not know how to store it.
Keep your bananas on the kitchen counter and let the fruits ripen. The ripening process is prevented if bananas are put in the cooler.
We do not want our garlic to sprout! But that’s what happens to this fragrant plant if it is kept in the cooler.
Take your garlic out of the fridge and find a better place.
If you keep it in a dry, cool and well ventilated place, your garlic will not lose its aroma, properties and texture.
Honey is an incredibly valuable product. Its special properties make honey one of the super foods we all should consume on a regular basis unless you are allergic to it and cannot eat it.
Honey is naturally preserved and does not need to be stored in the fridge. Keep natural honey in a clean container away from sunlight.
Place it in a dry place where the temperature is not too low. Although crystallizing is a normal process, you can delay it by keeping your honey in room temperature.
Basil will lose its freshness and shape if you place it in the refrigerator. Cold temperatures wilt plants, basil included. More than that, basil absorbs the smells coming from the surrounding foods.
If you know how to treat flowers, you’ll know how to treat basil, too. Do the same things – keep out of the fridge in a container with fresh water.
Freeze the herb and use it later, but blanch it first.
There are two absolutely opposite opinions regarding eggs and their storage conditions.
Some people believe that the best place to keep eggs is the refrigerator. According to them, eggs stay fresh in low temperatures and cold places.
Others claim that it does not really matter whether the temperature is low or not – eggs do not lose their properties anyways.
The only advice we can give you is: try out both of the above mentioned storage conditions and decide which one works for you best.
