What do you keep in your fridge?
Yesterday, I was reading the result of a survey of 4000 homes by a fridge manufacturer.
Apparently, 26% keep medicines, 6% keep glue, 3% keep nail varnish and 1% keep paint and batteries in their fridge. Of food items, nearly 75% keep eggs, ketchups, mustard and jams and 64% keep fruit in the fridge - none of which need to be, even though manufacturers tell us to.
Apparently, we should keep meats, dairy produce, salad and spinach leaves, soft herbs, salad onions and, once opened, ground coffee and cooking oils.
Fruit (including tomatoes), onions, garlic, potatoes, mushrooms and most other vegetables should be kept in a cool part of the kitchen.
I don't keep any non-food items in my fridge (although I have kept some medicine in it in the past, as instructed) and don't tend to keep ketchups/salad cream etc there as I don't have the space. But I do keep some veg there because I don't have a cool spot in my kitchen - it's an open plan living room/kitchen.
'Pantry' cupboards are fashionable at the moment for those who have the space, but I can't see a return of the dedicated pantry as a separate room which I can remember from my childhood.
