This is the ultimate all-in-one-place handy guide for food storage – from a source most of us can trust – RealSimple and the USDA:
A handbook with all you need to know to keep the stuff in your refrigerator, freezer, and pantry in peak condition.
By Elizabeth Passarella
Real Simple consulted the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), food scientists, food manufacturers, and a host of other experts—including fishmongers, cheese sellers, coffee roasters, bakers, and bartenders—to establish these storage guidelines. The first consideration was safety. But because you want your food to be delicious, too, for some products, Real Simple chose the conservative storage time for optimum freshness.
