10 Foods to Keep Out of the Fridge

Refrigerators are great, they keep our drinks cool and our food fresh.

However, despite our tendency to just toss whatever food we have into the fridge, there are certain foods that will fare much better outside of the cold environment than in it.

Here are 10 of the most common foods people keep in the fridge, but shouldn’t.

1. Tomatoes

The fridge does keep tomatoes fresh, but it does so by stopping the process of ripeness.

Consequently, they lose their flavor.

In addition, the refrigerator also changes the texture of the tomato, making it powdery or floury.

Tomatoes are best kept out of cold environments.

2. Basil

Putting fresh basil in the refrigerator causes it to withers very quickly, but before it withers all the way and becomes unusable, it absorbs the taste of the foods kept closest to it.

Basil is best kept outside the fridge and in a glass of fresh water, just like flowers.

3. Potatoes

Cold temperatures in the fridge turns the starch in the potato into sugar at a faster pace than normal, and we're left with a sweet yet grainy potato.

Keep your potatoes in a sealed sack and in a cool and dry place.

They should be covered, because being exposed to sunlight makes them grow sprouts.

4. Onions

The dampness in the fridge makes onions soft and moldy.

The best place to keep onions is in a cool and dry place, outside the fridge.

Green onions can be kept in the fridge because of their high percentage of water content.

Do not keep onions next to the potatoes, because it will make them rot quicker.

5. Avocados

If you're waiting for an avocado to ripen, you should never put it in the fridge.

However, if the avocado has already ripened, placing it in the fridge will prevent it from going bad.

6. Garlic

When we keep garlic in the refrigerator, it grows green stalks. Also, it'll get a moldy, sticky texture. It`s best to keep garlic in a dry, cool place.

7. Bread

When it comes to bread, there are a number of options.

If you are going to use sliced bread within a few days, it can be kept in the fridge.

If you intend on storing the bread for a longer period of time, keep in the freezer.

8. Olive Oil

Olive oil should be kept somewhere dark and cool, when placed in the refrigerator, it freezes and it`s texture becomes similar to butter.

That being said, you can thaw it again to its original state.

9. Coffee

Storing coffee in the fridge makes it lose its flavor quickly and absorb the flavor of foods stored near it.

Coffee should be kept somewhere dark and cool.

However, if you want to keep a large amount of coffee at home, you can keep it in the depths of the freezer, not near the door.

10. Honey

One of the most fascinating facts about honey is that it never goes bad.

There is no reason to keep it in the fridge, in fact it should be avoided as the cold temperatures will solidify it.

Honey is best kept at room temperature.

Unfortunately, that's all the time we have today.

We wish you and your family the very best in health and happiness this Holiday Season!
