Every year, Americans waste billions of dollars of food. Whether it is due to poor planning in their estimation of what they will eat or because this food sat in the refrigerator for too long, we do not know. But if you are like most Americans, your refrigerator is probably filled with uneaten leftovers or fruits wasting away. Your Clarksburg, Maryland kitchen could probably use a thorough cleaning, right? Let’s take a look at some food tips as well as how we can help you clean up your kitchen!
Freezing Your Assets
When choosing foods at the grocery store, there are some guidelines you should be following in order to make sure you aren’t wasting your food. Many people use warehouse stores in order to get the best value on their money, but these stores can mean you are wasting money. Instead of tossing your money into the garbage bin, try freezing it instead! If fruit is properly stored, it can last up to a year in your Clarksburg freeze. These fruits can be put into smoothies, thawed and eaten, or placed over ice cream. Frozen vegetables can be added into soup, stews, or thawed for a side dish. Veggies like leafy greens should be blanched before meeting the freezer so they retain their nutrients and color. You can also freeze herbs, rice, baked goods including pancakes and cookies, and even dairy products can be frozen.
Storing Your Items
Before tossing stuff into your fridge, make sure you aren’t using store containers. Put your produce into airtight containers and your meat into freezer bags to keep them fresh and ready for the week ahead. Store your food at 40 degrees Fahrenheit or lower to ensure freshness. Remember that foods have different expiration dates. Milk can last a week while eggs can last up to five weeks. Sliced deli meat can last up to five days and leftover cooked meat will last up to four days. Fruits can be stored in the fridge after ripening to last longer. Sometimes going off your food’s label is wasteful. Make sure you check your foods to ensure they are still good before eating and toss them if they aren’t good anymore.
If you notice a weird smell coming from your refrigerator, there is probably something inside of it that needs to be disposed of. But even if you find it, the smell can linger.
