Can I Put Freshly Bought Vegetables and Fruits in the Fridge?

Under COVID-19, it is rare to go out for a shopping trip, so I believe that you will always stock up on groceries for a few days and stuff them all into the fridge when you get back, but the fridge is not a ” safe deposit box” and it is difficult to ensure the freshness of ingredients if they are not stored scientifically.
Timexing has prepared this guide for you to keep your ingredients fresh in the fridge.


How to Store Vegetables

Greens

Wrap the greens in kitchen paper and put them in a plastic bag, then tie the bag and leave it in the freezer. As kitchen paper absorbs moisture, the vegetables will not be soaked in water vapour that they will rot.

Carrot

Dry the surface of the carrots with paper or air-dry them naturally. Cut off the green part of the carrot tops where the leaves grow and bring them into a plastic bag in the fridge.

Aubergine

When storing aubergines in the fridge, it is important that they do not get wet and that there are no cracks on the surface, as the skin is covered with a layer of wax which not only ensures that the aubergines are glossy but also protects them from microorganisms.
Therefore do not rinse them with water when storing, keep the skin dry and place them directly into a plastic bag.

Corn

Remove the outermost layer of the thick skin of the corn to be stored, leaving 3 layers of the inner husk without washing, remembering not to peel off all the husk and the lint from the head of the corn, then put the corn in a plastic bag, squeeze out the excess air and tie it tightly, and finally store the corn in the freezer.

Mushrooms

Keep mushrooms away from water and keep them dry when storing
It is best to store mushrooms in a sealed container in the fridge because they are more likely to spoil if they get wet.
Timexing’s food containers are sealed and ventilated so that moisture and humidity do not accumulate and can be used many times over.


How to Store Meat

Wash and remove the meat after you buy it.
The meat should not be thawed repeatedly, as the temperature rises during the thawing process, causing bacteria to multiply in the meat, leading to a reduction in taste and nutrition.
So store the meat separately in a plastic bag and then freeze it.
If the meat is stuffed,it should be maintained in slices.


How to Store Fruit

Most fruits are adapted for cold storage in the fridge
However.It does not want to the fruit before putting it in the fridge as it has a natural pectin surface.
Pectin protects the fruit from microorganisms and prevents water loss.
Thick-skinned fruits such as watermelon and cantaloupe can be stored directly in the fridge.
Apples, grapes, lychees, longan, peaches, plums, lotus, cherries, strawberries, blueberries and other fruits can be be kept in the fridge in a professionally sealed container to prevent water from evaporating too quickly.
At the same time open the air holes so that the fruit can breathe and prevent decay.


What foods should I not keep in the fridge?

Refrigerators provide us with the convenience of storing food, but not all food is suitable for preservation in the refrigerator, and some food is more likely to do badly in the fridge.

Tropical fruits

Tropical fruits are not suitable for storage in the fridge
Because most of them are afraid of the cold and frostbite will not only damage the nutrients but also cause the skin to blacken and deteriorate, which will speed up the decay of the flesh.

Potatoes

Examples include potatoes, sweet potatoes etc.
Store these ingredients in cardboard boxes or paper bags in a cool, dry place at room temperature dry environment has relatively low humidity and low evaporation of bacteria.
Also, potatoes should not be stored with sweet potatoes as this may cause them to sprout.
When storing potatoes you can put apples inside as the ethylene gas emitted by apples can slow down the sprouting of potatoes.

Other vegetables

Examples include tomatoes and cucumbers.
Tomatoes are a temperature-loving vegetable and refrigerating them can damage their internal structure.
So just place the tomatoes with the tips facing downwards and keep them at room temperature.
Cucumbers can become black, soft, tasteless and sticky when kept in the fridge for a long time.
To store cucumbers, simply place them neatly in a basket and put them in a cool, airy place.


Discover these tips for storing in the fridge and see if you’ve put the right ingredients in your home.
Timexing reminds you that it’s best to eat your fruits and vegetables as soon as possible while they’re fresh, and not to store them in the fridge for too long.
