Clean your Fridge


Learn how to clean your fridge with natural ingredients and get rid of fridge odours. Also some great tips for making the most of freezer storage.

Freezer storage guide:

FRUIT    most fruit can be stored for 8 – 12 months. Longer impairs quality but they will still be safe to eat providing storage has been at 0 degrees C.

VEGETABLES   properly prepared and stored vegetables can be frozen for up to 1 year with the exception of onions – 2 months, kumara – 3 months, and corn – 6 – 8 months.

MEAT    fresh pieces of beef, lamb and venison can be frozen for 8 – 10 months, mince 3 – 6 months, sausages 1 -2 months.

CHICKEN   whole, unstuffed up to 12 months, pieces 6 months

FISH       fresh fish 2 – 4 months, cooked fish 2 – 4 weeks.

 

Tips for freezing: Only freeze foods you know will be eaten. Only freeze quantities that can be eaten within the recommended storage times. Always label what is in the pack and make sure you put a date on it. Freezing foods costs money so only freeze what you know will eat. If in doubt throw it out – its not worth the risk of food poisoning.
