Storing raw Chicken…..

Store raw chicken or turkey in its original packaging, on the bottom shelf of your fridge. Just make sure the packaging is well-sealed and away from other foods and cooked meats. Double check that your fridge is set to 0-5°C. This keeps your chicken – and all the food in your fridge – fresher for longer.

Storing Tomato Sauce in Plastic Containers……

To keep your plastic storage containers from becoming discolored from tomato products, spray with a non-stick cooking spray first, then place your food items inside.

Keeping Vegetables crisp……..

By lining the crisper section of your refrigerator with newspaper and wrapping vegetables with it, moisture will be absorbed and your vegetables will stay fresh longer.

Freezing meat…………

Wrap meats very tightly in either plastic wrap or freezer paper, pressing the wrapping right up against the surface of the meat. Next, wrap another layer of aluminum foil around the meat or seal it inside a zip-top freezer bag. Packaged like this, meat can be kept frozen for at least three months. Also remember a full freezer is more economical to run as the cold air doesn’t need to circulate as much, so less power is needed.

Prevent Food Storage Stains……….

To protect your containers from tomato-based stains, coat the inside with nonstick cooking spray before adding the leftovers to keep the plastic as good as new.

Breathe easy……………..

Wrap all produce loosely; air circulation around fruits and vegetables reduces spoilage. A sealed perforated plastic bag is ideal. You can make your own by simply poking several holes in an ordinary sandwich or freezer bag.

Leftover Turkey……………

Cooked turkey is safe in the fridge for up to three to four days, so you can get creative with some recipes over the next few days. Remember, if you’re heating up the leftover turkey, ensure it is piping hot throughout. Do not reheat meat more than once.

Line the crisper bins…….

It’s always a good idea to line the crisper bins of your fridge with a few paper towels or sheets of newspaper to absorb excess moisture. Mold spores love moisture, but the towels will keep it away.

How to freeze blueberries……

* Use fresh blueberries that are completely dry when you pop them in the freezer. Don’t worry about rinsing the berries before you freeze them; simply place them, still in their original containers, in resealable plastic bags and store them on your freezer shelf.
* If you prefer to rinse the blueberries first, dry them well with paper towels, then transfer them to freezer containers or resealable plastic bags for freezing. The blueberries will freeze individually so you can remove just the portion you need.
* If you didn’t wash your blueberries before freezing them, rinse them just before use.
For best results, toss your home-frozen blueberries into oatmeal, yogurt, smoothies, shakes or sauces within 10 months.

Making space in the fridge for Thanksgiving………

Make space for Thanksgiving by cleaning out leftovers and expired condiments and using up as much as possible of what’s in the freezer and the refrigerator.
You can store hearty produce, like apples, fresh cranberries, and potatoes, in a cool, dry place, like the trunk of the car or the basement. We made a covered shelf in our shed, it works great as long as the weather stays cold.
