Keep food fresher and longer
Monday, October 13, 2008
Tips for storing foods:
If you're not going to eat it fast, you can keep it in the freezer for 3months.
It can get as hards as a rock. Store it in an airtight container to keep moisture in.
It can go rancid. Wrap and freeze what you don't use.
Wrap in wax paper and place in an airtight plastic bag to keep fresh.
Keep in opaque or dark containers and keep in a cool dark place.
Crackers and chips can get soggy if not sufficiently protected from humidity. Use a chip clip or airtight container to keep them fresh.
Whole Wheat Flour:
Unlike white flour, wheat flour contains higher levels of fat that gives it a brief shelf life. It will last 6 months in the fridge.
Will keep for 1 or 2 days in the fridge. 3 months in the freezer.
To stop freezer burn, place a piece of plastic wrap over the ice cream--then put the top back on.
Nuts and seeds:
They can go rancid. In the fridge, they will last up to a year. Keep them in airtight portions if you choose to freeze them.
Can absorb odors from spices. Keep it in an airtight container.
Ground spices typically have a 2-3 year shelf life, but heat and moisture can cause them to lose their OOMPH. Keep them in a dark place away from moisture.
If stored next to spices, tea can absorb these flavors, Keep in airtight container.
