See 10 Foods You Should Never Keep In The Fridge

When it comes to storing food properly, there are many conventions that some people swear by and others will argue until the end of time.

Chances are you’ve mistakenly been storing some of these foods in your fridge, when you should really be keeping them out on your counter or in your store.

Here are 10 foods you shouldn’t keep in your fridge:

HONEY
It will stay good basically forever if you simply keep it tightly sealed. Keeping honey in the refrigerator can cause it to crystalize.

TOMATO
Tomatoes will lose all their flavor in the fridge.

AVOCADO
If you want avocados to ripen, definitely don’t put them in the refrigerator. However, if you’ve bought an already-ripe avocado that you don’t want to use right away, that can go in the fridge.

BREAD
You refrigerator will dry out your bread quickly. Unless it’s sliced sandwich bread that you intend to use within a few days, keep bread out on the counter or in the freezer. You should keep bread that you will eat within four days out, to be sliced when you’re ready to eat it, and you should freeze the rest to thaw and eat later. Bread in the freezer should be wrapped so it retains its moisture, and when you remove it from the freezer, you should let it thaw slowly and completely before eating or toasting.

OLIVE OIL
You should store olive oil in a cool, dark place, but not in the fridge, where it will condense and turn to a harder, almost butter-like consistency.

COFFEE
It will lose its flavor and actually take on some of the odors in the fridge.

BASIL
Basil will wilt faster if left in the fridge, and it will also absorb all the smells of the food around it.

ONION
If you put onions in the fridge, the moisture will eventually turn them soft and moldy. Keep them in a cool, dry place.

POTATO
Keeping a potato in the cold temperature of your refrigerator will turn its starch into sugar more quickly, so that you’ll be left with a sweet, gritty potato.

GARLIC
Eventually, garlic will start to sprout in the fridge, and it may also get rubbery and moldy. You should instead keep garlic in a cool, dry place.
