I like cooking with fresh ingredients. Of course sometimes you just can’t.. and some times they are not really fresh. Have you ever seen a corn stand that said this corn is not fresh? they always seem to say Fresh corn.. even though it was picked days ago.. groans..
But there are some foods you can ruin too, even though they were perfect when you bought them. Some foods do not belong in the….
Fridge. Cooling will ruin them.
Tomatoes, no not canned, fresh ones. Cooling them destroy’s their flavour and aroma. Makes them tasteless. The same with Basil, it likes to be warm. Keep them out of the fridge.
Onions and Potatoes.. nope, keep them out. Onions develop a bad taste in the fridge, the starches in potatoes turn to sugar. Now if you cut your onion open, then chill it. Garlic too, it doesn’t belong in the fridge.
Bread.. oh no, don’t keep it in the fridge, it goes stale fast there. Six times faster. blech.
We try to eat food that tastes good, that is obvious, but ruining food before we eat it, is just wrong.
Oh, have you heard about the arsenic in rice? Just to cheer you up. Lawmakers want to limit the amounts of arsenic in rice now. limit it… shiesh.
Arsenic poisoning is cumulative, nice that they want to “limit” it. Good to slow things down… *rolls my eyes*
This seems to be rice that is grown in the United States in Texas and Louisiana and along the gulf coast. South Korea doesn’t want it anymore. go figure. Brown rice is worse, it has more arsenic in it. Just when you think you are eating healthy….
It is suspected that the rice grown in this area, which was a cotton growing area, has arsenic in it because of pesticides used to kill off the boll weevil using an arsenic compound… see it doesn’t go away, stick it in the earth.. and it stays there.
