The holidays is a time that is notorious for filling up your refrigerator with leftover food. An excess of food is a welcome problem for many people!
However, when it begins to pile up and can not be consumed within three to four days, the recommended storage of leftovers by the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA FSIS), it's best that it should either be frozen or thrown out.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
3. Condiments that have expired or spoiled
There are certain condiments that are best stored in your refrigerator. This includes the lechon sauce you love serving with crispy pata and lechon kawali, mustard and ketchup for a longer storage life, and even that bottle of chili paste you like adding to your siomai.
However, these same condiments need to be thrown out if it has expired or earlier if it shows signs of mold or spoilage.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
4. Food left in its packaging for too long
Admit it. You don't always transfer leftover food from cans and packets into another container. It's so much easier to believe that you will use up the remaining food soon so it won't go to waste.
However it's the new year and if you still haven't used up the last 1/2 can of mushrooms, 1/4 packet of tomato sauce, the last two tablespoons of condensed milk, or the 1/2 pack of all-purpose cream by now, you might never do it. It might be time to toss these out.
If the food has dried up or developed mold, throw it out. If the food has absorbed smells and aromas, throw it out.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
