If you’re due for a good refrigerator cleaning it’s a great time to put things back in an organised and effective way. Organise your fridge for ease of use and food safety with this simple guide.
At the culinary site TheKitchn they’ve put together a guide to organising your kitchen to organise food by cooking temperature and minimise the chances of cross contaminating your food.
Professional kitchens organize their fridges with food safety in mind, storing cold foods according to their cooking temperature.
From top to bottom, you’ll find prepared foods that will be served cold or re-heated; then whole cuts of meat and fish; then ground meat; and finally, chicken and other poultry on the very bottom. Since each shelf of food is cooked to a progressively higher temperature, any cross contamination through dripping from above is taken care of during cooking.
Check out the full article for more information about organising your fridge including how to use the drawers more effectively for meat and vegetable storage. Have a fridge organising tip of your own to share? Let’s hear about it in the comments.
