Here’s Why You Should Never Put These 15 Foods in the Fridge

FeaturedImg

No matter how big your fridge is, there are times – especially during the holidays or right before a big party – when it seems to be bursting at the hinges. You can shove odd items into the vegetable bins or toss out a few old jars of this and that but there’s an even simpler solution that will free up lots of space year round: stop refrigerating items that don’t need it.

Many foods, particularly certain varieties of produce, are actually harmed by refrigeration. They can lose nutrients, spoil faster and often lose the great flavor you bought them for. Other canned or jarred foods simply don’t need to be kept cold to preserve their taste and quality. Check out these tips and enjoy your new-found refrigerator space.

Fresh avocado, apples, bananas, citrus fruits, berries, peaches, apricots, and nectarines should never be refrigerated. Doing so depletes their texture and taste. You can chill them for a half hour right before eating for crispness. Keep space between citrus fruits on the counter to deter mold. Cut fruits are fine refrigerated.
