5 foods the GHI would NEVER put in a fridge!
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.
