Always go for air tight containers
Most of the time we have leftovers that we don’t know how to store. We can’t eat the same dish again in the next meal and putting the dish in the refrigerator just makes it lose its taste. A simple solution for this is to transfer the dish in an air tight container and put it in the freezer. When you feel like eating the same dish again, just take it out of the freezer an hour before.
Seasoning and olive oil cubes
When you go out for your weekly grocery shopping, you get your favourite herbs, but by the time you get to use them, they are not as fresh. So, next time when you get your weekly supply, take an empty ice cube tray and put the herbs in different section. Once done, fill the tray with olive oil and put it in the freezer. Next time when you wish to use the herbs, just take out a cube and you are sorted.
Freeze the extra chutney
Have you ever been able to consume the whole chutney that you make at once? We are sure that the answer is no and you must be aware of the pain that one feels while throwing the chutney away. Not anymore, you can now just put the extra chutney in a jar and freeze it. It remains just the same.
Know how to store the cheese
Storing cheese is a difficult task as you may notice that its colour and flavour change over time. This is because you keep it in the same plastic packing as it comes in. Next time, take it out of the plastic packing and wrap it in a parchment paper. This way the cheese stay fresh for a long time. This is also one of our most helpful storage hack.
Extra meat? straight to the freezer
All of us have a habit of buying meat in bulk but we fail when it comes to storing the produce. An easy way out of it is to put the meat in the refrigerator as soon as you bring it home. Just put the produce in a zip pouch and store it in the freezer.
