Stop Refrigerating These Foods!
Potatoes are the favorite starch of many, but the refrigerator’s cool temps can turn the starch in potatoes to sugar and kill the flavor. A good trick is to store your potatoes in a paper bag (it’s more breathable than plastic) in a cool, dark place.
Much like potatoes, tomatoes will lose their flavor in the refrigerator. The cold breaks down the cell walls in tomato flesh, making it mushy, and also stops them from ripening. Store tomatoes at room temp on the counter, away from direct sunlight.
