Where do I store tomatoes? Answer: Cupboard tomatoes Answer: Cupboard For the freshest flavor, tomatoes should always be stored at room temperature, away from direct sunlight (which can cause the fruit to ripen unevenly). The cold will turn tomatoes mealy and give them an unappetizing texture.
Where do I store apples? Answer: Fridge Answer: Fridge Like stone fruits, apples should be left out at room temperature if they still need to ripen. Once an apple is ripe, however, storing it in the fridge will extend its shelf life dramatically from 1 to 3 days to 3 to 4 weeks! Plus, who doesn't love biting into a crisp, cool apple?
Where do I store fruits with stone? Answer: Both Fridge & Cupboard This one’s a trick question because the answer is both. Stone fruits (think peaches, plums, and nectarines) will not ripen in the fridge. So make sure you store this category of fruits on the counter until they’re ripe and juicy. Once they are fully ripe, however, shift stone fruits to the fridge to extend their shelf life.
Where do I store potatoes? Answer: Cupboard Cold temperatures cause the starches in potatoes to turn into sugar, making them oddly sweet when cooked. So, instead of putting them in the fridge, store potatoes in paper bags in a cool, dark cupboard where they will stay fresh for 1 to 3 weeks. When your potatoes start to sprout, it’s a sign that the starches have begun to break down and it’s time to toss them.
Where do I store Bread? Answer: Cupboard While refrigerating bread will prevent mold, it will also cause the bread to dry out and go stale more quickly. Instead of storing bread in the fridge, freeze the portion of the loaf that you know you won’t use within four days and then keep the rest in your pantry.
Where do I store onions? Answer: Cupboard onions Answer: Cupboard Onions take on a too-soft texture in the fridge. It’s also best to store onions away from other ingredients that might take on their overpowering flavor. Once they are cut, however, you should store them in the fridge where they will keep for a few more days. One more thing to note… Never store your onions and your potatoes together. These two ingredients each give off moisture and gases that will cause the other to spoil…
Where do I store berries and grapes? Answer: Fridge Raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, cherries, and grapes should all be stored in the fridge as soon as you get them hope from the market. Keeping these fruits out on the counter will only speed up their decay.
