Therefore, in the following article we present some tips and ways to preserve food in summer, which will help to take care of your health and save.

1. Care from the super

We must bear in mind that to better preserve food, it is important to start with care when making the purchase. Whether in the store, in the market or in the supermarket, in addition to hygiene measures, you must be very careful when choosing each product.
Make sure the fruit has no nicks, bumps, and is not overripe. The best thing is that you buy it in small quantities, since in addition to contributing to your savings, you will not run the risk of it spoiling, the same with vegetables. As for the fish and meat, look at their smell and color to see that they are in perfect condition.
In the same way, in any other product you purchase, check without exception the date of consumption and the expiration date. Store them in the fridge and freezer as soon as you get home.

2. Correct handling

When storing food we must take into account proper handling, so it is important to exercise extreme hygiene. Hands must be clean, as well as kitchen utensils and surfaces.
For food preservation, get used to using special tapers and bags to keep them away from insects. Close them very well to keep them perfectly without air entering, that way you can take advantage of their storage in isolation.
You must bear in mind that for its conservation you must anticipate the time of consumption, so if these foods are at a consumption time of one or two weeks, vacuum packaging is a good option. However, if the term is longer, it is preferable to freeze it.

3. Store food properly

In summer, it is advisable to store perishable food in the refrigerator to ensure its best preservation. The best thing to do is to put those products that take the longest to expire in the background and put those with a more recent consumption date in front of you. This way you will consume them without problem and avoid wasting food.
The coldest area of ​​the refrigerator should be reserved for meats, fish and prepared dishes, at a temperature between 1 ° and 4 ° C, while the warmest area is suitable for fruits and vegetables, between 5 ° and 8 ° C. Also remember not to constantly open the door of this appliance. You will save energy and prevent food from spoiling.

4. Food out of the refrigerator

On the other hand, it must be taken into account that not all food must be kept in the refrigerator. For example, there are some of vegetable origin that can be outside, among them, onions, potatoes, oils, etc., which continue to resist well outside, so you can only store them in a dry place, never on the ground and well labeled.
For the rest of the vegetables, take advantage of the correct space on the shelves of the refrigerator ideal to keep these products. If you buy fruits and vegetables wrapped in plastic wrap or plastic bags, the accumulation of moisture can cause them to rot sooner, since they need oxygen to avoid decomposing. That is why it is better that, when placing them in the refrigerator, you place them loose or if required in suitable containers. This will help you to stay in good condition longer.

5. Cooked dishes

It is common for us to start cooking for two people and end with one pot for the whole month. To avoid this waste of food, the ideal is to pack what we cook correctly, noting the cooking date, and freeze it. On the contrary, if you think you will consume it in the next two or three days, keep it in the refrigerator, but always in a suitable container and covered, to avoid contaminating the rest of the food.
