STORING FRESH FOOD
There is a right way to package
and store
refrigerated

longer, take the time to study these recommended
steps.
leafy
Vegetables...Remove
store wrapping
and trim or tear off bruised and discolored
areas.
Wash in cold water and drain. Place in plastic bag
or plastic containerand
store in crisper. Cold, moist
air helps keep leafy vegetables
fresh and crisp.
Vegetables
wlth Skins
(carrots, peppers)...Store
in crisper, plastic bags or plastic container.
Frult...Wash, let dry and store in refrigerator
in
plastic bags or crisper. Do not wash or hull berries
until they are ready to use. Sort and keep berries in
their store container
in a crisper, or store in a
loosely closed paper bag on a refrigerator shelf.
Cured
or Smoked
Meat
and Cold
Cuts.
Ham,
bacon, sausage, cold cuts, etc., keep best in origi-
nal wrappings,
Once opened, tightly re-wrap in
plastic wrap or aluminum foil.
Canned
Ham.
Store in refrigerator
unless the
label says it's okay to store on the shelf. Do not
freeze.
Fresh
Poultry...Wrap
in plastic wrap. The plastic
on poultry, as purchased, may be used for storage.
NOTE: Fresh flsh and shellfish
should
be used the
same day as purchased.
Meat*...Meat
is perishable and expensive...you
won't want to waste an ounce of it through careless
handling.
The following
list and chart give you
packaging
hints and time limits.
Fresh, Prepackaged
Meat.
Store fresh meat in
the store wrapping. Vacuum packaged
meat can
be frozen for as long as one month if the seal is not
broken. If you want to keep it frozen longer, you
should wrap it with special
freezer wrapping
material.

Not Prepackaged.
Remove the
market wrapping
paperand
re-wrap in aluminum
foil for storing it unfrozen.

Wrap or cover cooked meat with
plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Store immediately.

in the original
carton or use the egg nest in the door of your

milk on interior shelf.

bottles and cans. Store on a
door shelf or inside the refrigerator.
Butter...Store what you might use in a day in the

freezer packaging
and freeze.

in the original
wrapping
until
you are ready to use it. Once opened,
re-wrap
tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil.
Condlments...Store
small jars and bottles
(catsup, mustard, jelly, olives] on the door shelves
where they are in easy reach.
