We know that most people wouldn’t attempt to place regular oil or other oil-based liquids into the fridge, however, even if there is one person out there who would, we must shout. The cold temperatures do not favor any oil-based liquid. In fact, it turns into unidentified material that is thick, separated, and impossible to use.
The oil particles become solids with gross lumps that find it difficult to go back to their original state, even after warming up. There will be no harm done to your oily liquids if stored properly in one of your kitchen cupboards, so spare the fridge shelf for other and better foods that will not tolerate the weather outside.
Just because parmesan is a type of cheese, it doesn't mean it has to be stored in the fridge. Parmesan is a cheese that is the best companion to spaghetti Bolognese, vegetable lasagna, and practically any other comforting Italian dish. The cheese is rock hard, and if it is not boiling hot outside, there is no need to make it harder than it already is.
The Italian Delight has a relatively low percentage of water in it, so it doesn't need to be protected by low temperatures and a moist environment. The low percentage of water also promises this cheese will not be vulnerable to bacteria of all sorts.
This next one might come as a surprise to you. We mean, everyone we know, including ourselves, keeps kiwis in the fridge. Where else would you keep them? The kiwi is a tropical fruit and, therefore, is not a big fan of the cold weather, so naturally, the fridge is not the place for it to be.
Peeling a kiwi has always been a messy and complicated task, and when the fruit is left in the fridge, it becomes even harder. The peel is supposed to come off easily, and when the flesh of the fruit is at room temperature, it makes the challenge much easier to accomplish.
You'll be surprised to know that there are over 40 varieties of melons. The ones that we are familiar with in the supermarkets are the honeydew melons and cantaloupe melons. The honeydew melons are the ones with the orange peel and the yellow sweet center, while the cantaloupe are the ones that are green on the outside and orange on the inside.
Both varieties are best left alone and out of the fridge. Why, you ask? Well, the true wonderful flavors of the melon can only be appreciated when the fruit is at room temperature. When in the fridge, the melon will become moist, which softens the peel and makes the fruit's flesh soggy and unpleasant.
Broccoli belongs to the cruciferous vegetable family, which includes cauliflowers, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, and others. Now, in general, no harm will be done to our broccoli if placed in the cold refrigerator, however, if it doesn't have enough room to breathe, it starts to go off.
The green miniature tree will keep a long life duration if gently wrapped in a loose plastic bag, which will ensure it has flowing air circulation. If your fridge is anything like ours, there will not be enough space, so it is best to keep it away from sunlight and in a dry place. If it's out, make sure to consume it within two to three days.
