10 Foods You Should Never Refrigerate | Cooking Tips

We all love to eat. Some of us also love cooking :) We keep lot of food stuff in the refrigerator but there are many foods which should never be Refrigerated.

10 Foods you should never Refrigerated



Below is the list of my top ten items which should never be Refrigerated :-

1. Potatoes

Who doesn't love potatoes. But keep in mind that they are full of starch, so if you are planning to keep them in refrigerator keep note of this things. The cold temperature in the refrigerator converts the starch to sugar changing its taste to little sweet or gritty. Thus Potatoes should be kept in refrigeration in dry paper bags instead of plastic bag as plastic bag promotes moisture and mold.


2. Bread

Bread is the most commonly used breakfast people do around the world. Many people tempt to store bread in refrigerator but believe me this is definitely not the best of the thing you would
like to do. Instead refrigeration stale the bread quickly and & its flavor too. Better idea is to keep it in room temperature & eat within its expiry date.


3. Honey

"You are my pumpkin pumpkin hello honey bunny". Yes we are talking about Honey. Don't store honey in the fridge as it is going to end up with hard crystallized honey & the taste too will
change. Store it at room temperature & out of direct sunlight for a appealing tasty honey.


4. Coffee

Coffee's aroma! Yes we all love it!! However this is another thing which should not be kept in refrigerator. Coffee has absorbing qualities thus it immediately starts absorbing any smell coming in the fridge. Also the flavor of coffee will change because the fridge creates condensation. If you want to store coffee you can use air tight container at room temperature.


5. Oils

Cooking oils gets thicker if stored in refrigerator. Only oils which are good to refrigerate are nut based oils and lower saturated -fat content such as Sesame or unless it is mentioned
on the bottle itself.


6. Jam

Jam contains high amount of preservatives so they are not required to be kept in fridge.



7. Pickles

Pickles will stay crisp in the pantry as it also contains lot of preservatives. However if you want to store , keep them in the refrigerator door.


8. Spices 

Most spices can be safely stored for years without refrigeration thus there is no benefit in keeping them in refrigerator at all. Refrigeration only reduces the flavor of spices.


9. Onions

Onions are an essential part of cooking. It needs to be kept in an area that allows air circulation. Definitely refrigerator is not a good choice. If onions are cut open , place them in a resealable bag in the vegetable drawer/box or keep them soaked in water in a tight container in refrigerator.
I hope the above information will prove useful to you. For more such Tips stay tuned with Khushi's World.

10. Garlic 

Refrigeration reduces the flavor of garlic. However if the garlic are peeled off it can be stored in the refrigerator until it expires. Garlic should be stored in cool dry and ventilated container which will hold the amazing flavor of garlic for weeks. If you break Garlic head then it should be used within 10 days .
