Keep some foods out of refrigerator for better taste

Refrigerator is where most of the foods are stored to last longer, but not every perishable needs the cold and dark environment it provides.

Chef Rachel Reuben, who frequently teaches others how to cook, says one of the lessons she offers her students provide information on which foods to refrigerate, especially produce.

Interviewed by CBS News, Reuben said: “I think we assume everything will do better in the refrigerator but that’s not really true.”

Fruits and vegetables, like all foods, will not go bad that quickly, but the cost associated with preserving them is a loss of taste and they will not be as healthy. “They will lose nutrients and flavor in the refrigerator,” Reuben said.

When left in the refrigerator, tomatoes lose texture while potatoes turn gritty. In her opinion, certain foods like apples, onions, avocados and citrus fruits are better when kept at room temperature. Unless you want bananas to turn black quickly, do not put them in the refrigerator.

Berries should also stay out of refrigerator for better taste, and that means we should buy them in small quantities.

The common belief that keeping bread in the refrigerator prevents mold results in bread drying out, Reuben says.

The one item people do not refrigerate, but probably should, is nuts. Pantry offers a safe place for them, but in Reuben’s opinion, they will taste better and last longer by storing them in the refrigerator.

“If you have a large quantity of nuts that you know you’re not going to use for a long period of time, I would definitely keep nuts in the refrigerator,” she said.
