Every time you open the fridge door, the sight of the cramped space gives you the chills? Managing the storage space inside a refrigerator can be quite a task. You need something that can keep the food fresh as well as fits in well without taking too much space in your fridge. Let’s take a look at some of the cold storage solutions you can bank on:
Haven’t heard of them? Produce keepers have been specially designed to keep your leafy vegetables, especially lettuce and cabbage, fresh in the fridge. They are available in a range of sizes, from small, medium to large.
Reusable bags are a great storage solution for fruits and vegetables and as the name suggests, they can be used again and again. Some even come with zip locks to ensure your veggies remain fresh. From mesh fabric to cotton, you can choose from a wide variety.
These are perfect for storing left-over food, dips, fruits and berries. You can also store soups and broths in these containers. You can choose from a range of sizes depending on your needs.
You have made salad dressing in bulk and don’t know how to store it in the fridge? A glass jar can come to your rescue. You can also use one to keep your milk or yogurt in the fridge. You can also use these jars to stock fresh herbs in your fridge. Add some water along with the herbs, cover the top of the jar with a reusable bag to lock in the moisture and you can keep the herbs fresh for a longer duration.
Tips for storing meat: Meat and other perishable frozen products should be stored properly in the refrigerator. Raw meat can be a potential carrier of pathogens. Therefore, it needs to be cleaned thoroughly and stored in a leak-proof container in a separate drawer. In case there is a shortage of space, double wrapping the meat inside the freezer also works.
