food for Thought
• Always do a visual and smell check of anything you’ve stored—if it smells funky, has started to grow moldy, or has bugs in it, ditch it.
• Cooked food only lasts as long as the fastest expiring ingredient used.
• As much as possible, try to store refrigerated food in airtight containers.
• Freezing extends any food’s shelf life, but may compromise flavor and quality.
