  10. Storing Fresh Foods • Examples of fresh foods that may be stored as dry foods: • Bananas • Potatoes • Onions, garlic • Bakery foods: breads, cakes, and doughnuts. • So…where can we store them? 6.01BB Storing Foods 10

  11. Storing Fresh Foods • Bananas may be stored on the countertop. They will continue to ripen here. • Potatoes, onions, garlic should be stored in a cool, dry place away from the light. A pantry or cupboard works well. 6.01BB Storing Foods 11

  13. Storing Frozen Foods • What types of foods do we buy in the freezer section of the store? 6.01BB Storing Foods 13

  14. Storing Frozen Foods • Foods found in the freezer section include: • Convenience foods-pizzas, waffles • Frozen vegetables / fruits • Frozen pie crusts • Ice cream • Whipped topping • Novelty foods like frozen pops and ice cream sandwiches • Breads • Juices • Meats 6.01BB Storing Foods 14

  15. Storing Frozen Foods • When I shop, should I select items to ensure they are solidly frozen for storage at home? 6.01BB Storing Foods 15

  16. Storing Frozen Foods • When shopping for frozen foods choose: • Frozen foods last so they will stay frozen until stored at home. • Frozen foods solidly frozen in the store without ice crystals on the outside of the packaging and loose-type foods like peas that are still loose in their package. This is an indication they have been kept properly frozen. 6.01BB Storing Foods 16

  17. Storing Frozen Foods • What do I do if some items thaw before getting them stored? 6.01BB Storing Foods 17

  18. Storing Frozen Foods • Properly thawed foods may be refrozen in the packaging from the store, including meats. Thawing in a vehicle is NOT a proper thawing procedure. Foods needs to have been kept at 40° or below to be food safe. • Partially thawed, very cold foods may be cooked and then frozen for later use. • If in doubt, throw it out! 6.01BB Storing Foods 18

  19. Storing Foods Remember: • Where we store foods at home is the same way we found them in the grocery store! • If you found it on a shelf, you can store it on a shelf. • If you pulled it from a refrigerated case, you must refrigerate it promptly at home. • If you found it in the frozen case, freeze it at home. 6.01BB Storing Foods 19

  20. Storing Foods • To maintain food safety, frozen foods and refrigerated foods need to be stored first. Then, canned items and other dry goods may be stored in the appropriate location. (For more info on Food Storage, see 6.01BB Storing Foods 20
