A New Year Refrigerator Intervention
Cleaning out the refrigerator for the New Year this morning seemed like a very practical and rewarding thing to do . There is nothing more satisfying that becoming reunited with the sauerkraut that you tucked away in a plastic container and pushed to the very back of your refrigerator. Now sauerkraut is one of the food categories that actually gets better with age. But for the most part, most of what I found in the very back of my refrigerator was no longer recognizable in its orginal form.
"Rejects' In Your Refrigerator
Fuzzy Foods that Need To Go
But the biggest waste of food belongs to the fruit category. Of course everyone knows that the best way to buy fruit is in small amounts, ripe and daily. That works well when you live in Manhattan and you have an Asian grocery store under your apartment, but it doesn't work well when you live a few miles from your suburban supermarket and you are buying fruit that is either hard like a rock or looks good from the outside but is just waiting to keel over in your refrigerator.
And The Winner Is....Strawberries
