15 Things Not Allowed In The Refrigerator


Secrets in the kitchen are worth telling if they can help everybody use ingredients at their maximum potential. With technology present in our lives at a much higher level than in the past, you might tend to overuse it in your relation with food. This list of 15 things you should not refrigerate is thought to allow you for a better use of a variety of ingredients.


1. Hot sauce will lose some of its proprieties if kept in the cooler. The hardened contents just won’t work as good. Deposit about any hot sauce you buy from the store away from any sunny or hot place and whip it out from the pantry every time you need to spice up your meal.

2. Potatoes are best kept in a paper bag somewhere in the pantry. That’s because all kinds of potatoes (red, white, fingerling etc.) become moist if preserved in plastic bags. Mold is also a cause of concern in the latter case, so make sure paper is your first choice of storing potatoes.

3. Bread doesn’t handle very well in the fridge as it dries out quickly. A recommended method is storing it in a dry place. The temperature should be at room levels.



4. Onions are something to be extra careful about, because they don’t just need a bag (or any other medium) that allows circulation, but also will rot away if you keep it close to potatoes.

5. Tomatoes are fine in the fridge, if you want them to be tasteless. But if you want them to ripen faster, put them in a paper bag. If not, away from the refrigerator and out of plastic bags to prevent getting them mealy.

6. Avocados can be stored in the fridge only after they are ripe; and up to a week so. Also, don’t cut it into slices because you will only make it possible to allow browning much quicker.

7. Coffee changes its taste when refrigerated. This happens because of condensation, so if you want your coffee beans or grounds to be as flavored as they come in the pack, store it in the pantry. Make sure the container is kept airtight though.

8. Garlic can be stored for months, two to be more precise. Mold and loss of flavor are the main effects of refrigerating garlic. This applies to the whole garlic, but minced one can be kept in the fridge if used ASAP.
