Refrigerator is an appliance that, thanks to its possibility to lower the temperature, keeps foods fresh and healthy. It is good to keep some ingredients in the refrigerator, but there are ingredients which, if kept in the refrigerator, lose their flavor and their durability is reduces. Here are four foods that we keep in the refrigerator, and do not need to.
Onions should be stored in a knitted sack at room temperature. However, it should not be stored near potatoes because they release gases and accelerate the process of rotting.
Garlic should be stored similar as onions -- at room temperature in knitted sack.
Potatoes should be stored in a dark and dry place approximately at room temperature. Low temperature destroys the taste of potatoes.
Almost all people keep it in the refrigerator, but this is how tomatoes lose their flavor. This is why experts recommend tomatoes to be kept in a plastic bag at room temperature. If you want the tomatoes to get ripe than store it in a paper bag.
