10 Foods You Should Never put in Refrigerator.

  karma level 74126

Refrigerators are the most important household good, isn't it? We often throw all our fresh foods into the fridge to prevent it from going bad. But should all food be kept refrigerated? Definitely not. Here are 10 common foods you should avoid from cooling too much, or you'll destroy the taste and ruin the food. 
1. Tomatoes

The fridge does keep tomatoes fresh, but it does this by stopping the process of ripeness. When this process is stopped, the tomato loses its flavor. In addition to the loss of flavor, the refrigerator also changes the texture of the tomato, making it powdery or floury. Tomatoes are best kept out of cooling, in a basket for instance.
2. Basil

When one keeps fresh basil in the refrigeration, it withers very quickly, but before it withers all the way and becomes unusable, it absorbs the taste of the foods kept close to it. The best way to keep fresh basil it outside the fridge, in a glass of fresh water, just like flowers.

3. Potatoes

The cold of the fridge turns the starch in the potato into sugar in a faster pace, and we're left with a sweet, yet grainy potato. Keep your potatoes in a sealed sack, in a cool but not cold place. They should be covered, because being exposed to sunlight makes them grow 'eyes'.

4. Onions

The damp in the fridge makes the onion soft and moldy. The best way to keep onions is in a cool and dry place, outside the fridge. Green onions can be kept in the fridge because of their high % of water content. Be sure not to keep onions next to the potatoes, because it'll make them both go bad faster.

5. Avocado

If you're waiting for the avocado to ripen, you should never put it in the fridge. A refrigerator does well by the avocado, but only if it has already ripened, and you want to prevent it from going bad.

6. Garlic

When we keep garlic in the refrigerator, it begins to shoot out and grow green stalks. Also, it'll get a moldy, sticky texture. It is best to keep garlic in a dry, cool place.

7. Bread

When it comes to bread, there are a number of options. If this is sliced bread you are going to use within a few days, it can be kept in the fridge. When you keep bread for longer, the fridge will make it dry out faster, and so it's best to keep it somewhere closed off, but not in the refrigerator. If you only rarely eat the bread, it can even be kept in the freezer.

8. Olive Oil

Olive oil should be kept somewhere dark and cool, but when put in refrigeration, it freezes and becomes alike to butter. That said, you can thaw it again to its original state.

9. Coffee

Storing coffee in the fridge makes it quickly lose its flavor and even absorb the flavor of foods stored near it. Coffee should be kept somewhere dark, somewhere cool. However, if you want to keep a large amount of coffee at home, you can keep in the depths of the freezer - not near the door.

10. Honey

One of the most fascinating facts about honey is that it never goes bad. You can eat honey from a thousand years ago, and it'll still be good. There is no reason to keep honey in the fridge and it should be avoided since the cold will make it a solid and it's always better kept at room temperature.
