10 Foods You Should Never Keep in the Fridge




According to The Huffington Post, here are 10 FOODS YOU SHOULD NEVER KEEP IN THE FRIDGE:


1. Tomatoes: Tomatoes will lose all their flavor in the fridge. The cold air in the fridge stops the ripening process, and ripening is what gives tomatoes more flavor. The fridge will also alter the texture of the tomato. Keep tomatoes out in a bowl or basket on the counter.

2. Basil: Basil will wilt faster if left in the fridge, and it will also absorb all the smells of the food around it. It's better to keep it out, sitting in a cup of fresh water, like cut flowers. Or...freeze it.

3. Potatoes: 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. Store them in a paper bag in a cool place. Store them in a dark place, like inside your pantry.
