Many of us are anxiously expecting the weather to get warmer so that we can finally head out in the sun and enjoy a wonderful day outdoors. For us at least that usually involves having a BBQ, but thanks to my subconsicous need to feed an army, I always end up with lots of leftovers and uncooked meat.
To avoid this situation of throwing food away, I decided to look into a few simple tips can both save money as well as prevent your loved ones from suffering any illness from eating food that hasnt been stored right.
1. Foods should be refrigerated within 2 hours of preparation. Even though it may seem energy efficient to let foods cool down on the counter before sticking them in the fridge, there can be a risk if they are left out too long. It’s important to remember that the clock starts ticking the moment your food is done cooking
2. Make sure your fridge is cold enough otherwise food poisoning bacteria will still be able to grow. Your fridge should be between 40 °F or below (0ºC and 5ºC)
3. When you’re preparing food, keep it out of the fridge for the shortest time possible, especially when the weather (or the room) is warm.
4. Uncooked potatoes are best kept somewhere cool and dry, but don’t keep them in the fridge. Potatoes can increase the amount of sugar they contain, which could lead to higher levels of a chemical called acrylamide when the potatoes are baked, fried or roasted at high temperatures.
5. Follow any storage instructions on the label and don’t eat meat after its “use by” date.
