Wheat flour in the fridge
You should know that the wheat germ found in wheat flour has quite a bit of oil. The problem is that this can go rancid if you leave it at room temperature. So it’s best to keep the flour in an airtight container in the fridge.
Do not keep bread in the fridge
We’re all guilty of this one. Keeping bread in the refrigerator might cause the bread to get stale even before its expiry date. This is because cold temperatures cause starch to recrystallize faster than in a warmer atmosphere.
Brush avocado halves with lemon juice
You’ve often seen half an avocado turn brown when you’ve left it in the fridge. Well, this is why you need citric acid. This acid is found in lemons and when brushed over an avocado, it prevents it from oxidation from the air.
Celery in foil
You’ve noticed how celery often becomes soggy and useless to use, right? The solution is wrapping it in aluminium foil that keeps it crisp. This is because foil allows the ripening hormone ethylene to escape.
Store mushrooms in brown paper bag
When moisture evaporates from the fungi, the papers soaks it up. This helps because the moisture doesn’t leave the mushrooms to turn soggy. Simple and effective!
