Do You Know How To Store Your Groceries Properly?

Or are you...in a pickle :)

  1. Where should you store avocados to ensure they ripen evenly?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Avocados should be kept on the counter until they ripen, since cooler temperatures can cause avocados to soften unevenly.

  2. Where should you store ketchup to maximize its shelf life?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Ketchup will last you a while, but to maximize its shelf life, most companies will tell you to keep it in the fridge.

  3. Where should you store Nutella to keep its texture nice and creamy?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Nutella should be stored at room temperature in a cool, dry place.

  4. Where should you store all purpose flour so it doesn't spoil?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    All purpose flour can survive up to two years in a cool, dry place like a pantry.

  5. Where should you keep eggplant to ensure maximum flavor?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Eggplant's flavors deteriorate faster when exposed to cold, so keep them on the counter, away from other fruits and veggies.

  6. Where should you keep butter to make it last longer?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    The door is the warmest part of the fridge, so keep it cool in the back instead.

  7. How should you store a bunch of bananas so they don't ripen top quickly?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    The ripening agent bananas release is concentrated in the stem, so if you separate them and wrap each one, they'll last longer.

  8. How should you store basil to ensure it lasts as long as possible?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Basil is a soft-stemmed herb, so it should be placed in water. Whereas other soft-stemmed herbs would go in the fridge, basil is best kept at room temperature.

  9. What's the best way to pack your greens so they stay fresh longer?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Try to avoid washing your greens before you need to use them. Leaving them in the crisper with something to absorb extra moisture keeps them fresher, longer.

  10. What's the best way to store meat in the freezer so it lasts longer?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Tightly seal your cuts to keep them from browning.

  11. What's the best way to store blue cheese in the fridge to keep its flavor?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Use a container to make sure the blue cheese's flavor doesn't spread to other items in your fridge.

  12. How should you store left over wine to keep it fresh as long as possible?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    If you fill a mason jar all the way up with wine and seal it tight in the fridge, it will be good for an entire week.
