5 foods the GHI would NEVER put in a fridge!

Good Housekeeping (UK) - - Gh Institute -

Av­o­ca­dos ripen bet­ter at room tem­per­a­ture. Once cut, sprin­kle with lemon juice and wrap in cling­film – only then should you put them in the fridge. Pota­toes Cold tem­per­a­tures con­vert the starch in your spuds to sugar (while warm tem­per­a­tures will make them sprout). Store in a plas­tic or pa­per bag in a cool, dark cup­board.

Bread Your loaf will go stale in the fridge. Put it in a bread bin or cloth bread bag (lakeland.co.uk; £8.49).

Basil will go black in the fridge. Cut off the ends of the stalks and keep basil in a glass of wa­ter at room tem­per­a­ture. If you’re not go­ing to use it all, chop up the leaves, put them in wa­ter and freeze in an ice cube tray.

Toma­toes Once re­frig­er­ated, toma­toes lose flavour and wa­ter. Keep them at room tem­per­a­ture and away from di­rect sun­light.

How­ever... The Bri­tish Egg In­dus­try Coun­cil ad­vises keep­ing eggs in the fridge – but not in the door, as the tem­per­a­ture fluc­tu­ates too much there.
