Most people put eggs in the fridge.
There isn't a need to ever put them in the fridge. Maybe if you live in Australia or somewhere, but not in Blighty.
What if you like raw chilled eggs?
yet you should really keep them in the fridge. Loads.
Warm can of coke anyone?
just for holding eggs individually! How do you explain that!
That's like glimpsing a place setting with your name on it at a restaurant, with moousee as the bouncer on the door saying you're not meant to be there.
really, really badly.
You should keep eggs in the fridge at home, but take them out prior to cooking them.
because they have a porous shell or something like that
No - Donald and carpet
I like a cold, crisp apple but pears need ripening and softening.
They are more crisp and juicy
It will develop so called "chocolate bloom", the white dusty layer forming on the outside and making it look unappealing.
and taste shit
and not melt on the tongue like it is supposed to
It is actually not the cold but the humidity of the fridge that ruins your chocolate. When a piece of chocolate bar stored in humid conditions the water dissolves the sugar in the surface of the chocolate forming sugar lumps in the surface.Then the water evaporates and what remains is a sugar layer covering the chocolate.
Fridges are by definition fairly humid environments. Chocolate should be stored in a dry cupboard.
Fat bloom is much more common and occurs when chocolate is stored in warm conditions, typically in a room that frequently rises above about 20 degrees.
Fat bloom occurs when there is a sudden temperature change, i.e. if you move chocolate previously kept at room temperature into a cold fridge. It changes the internal structure of the chocolate, the fats migrate to the surface and crystallize there creating the white layer.
So I'll just link to Wikipedia: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chocolate_bloom
A friend of the family is a chocolatier, and he's said that unless you have a cool pantry or ladder, you should keep chocolate in a fridge at home because the room temperature of a house, especially in a room like a kitchen which can vary significantly and can reach over 30 degrees on a regular basis, is much more likely to cause fat bloom than storing it in a fridge is likely to cause sugar bloom.
chocolate is eaten straight away and does not need storage
You know when something - let's say Mayonnaise or a chutney - has got a best before date and then says "once opened, refrigerate use within two weeks" or whatever.
Does that mean "it may taste a bit shit after that point" or "it may make you ill after that point"? I'm pretty sure I know the answer but I get a bit paranoid about these things and the switch from "best before" to "use" always confuses me.
Why does DiS hate me so much?
it's at its best before this bullshit date.
"use by" means you'll die if you eat it a day later.
It's a vinegar based condiment!
How many more times??
I like it chilled.
*HALF OF THE CHIP IS STILL PIPING HOT. THE OTHER HALF OF THE CHIP IS PIPING HOT ON THE INSIDE STILL, BUT WITH A LAYER OF COOL, COOL KETCHUP ON THE OUTSIDE, YOU MORON.
Carrots uncut don't need to be kept in the fridge.
Carrots chopped up do.
rather than squirting the sauce all over the chips.
but that is just them covering themselves. I like cold ketchup, so it goes in the fridge.
Yes: Mini apple pies
Chocolate - no, never, not ever
they sell them on the shelf, so stick them on yours. If you make boiled eggs with fridge eggs they explode.
If they are sold from the shelf/fridge, then store appropriate to this.
Multiple super ban request
no before opening
I'm going to bow to the NHS website: store in the fridge IDEALLY
I am overweight. Ignore it
I bet there is.
Is this a joke? You're supposed to keep dried pasta in the fridge.
Stupid things making you laugh right now
People shadowing your job.
I bought some grapes to work today and have put them in the fridge, but when I bought them in the greengrocers they were left out at room temperature.
and take them out an hour before you eat them.
but what kind of world do we live in where someone takes some grapes out of the fridge because they fancy eating them an hour later.
-"Ooh I'll fancy a grape in about an hour. Until then I'll sit here thinking my normal thoughts."-
I want to enjoy them in the best way.
i want to enjoy grapes
and eat them an hour later.
you know when you're in the car for hours on a super hot day and you have, say, a bottle of volvic which has been sitting in the sun for a ridiculous amount of time.
Does anyone else actually quite like the result when you drink it? Like the taste of it being sun warmed? Am I just fucking mental?
a cup of hot, boiled water
Absolutely the living end.
squeeze of lemon and a slice of ginger, and all is well again.
internal summer's day car heat. Although I did read once someone had some mineral water on holiday in Turkey and left it on the balcony for a few days. They drank it and got salmonella off whatever germs lived in the water presumably combined with the washback, so I make sure it is fairly fresh and British.
no idea how this ended up above.
does anyone actually use that word to describe a dong or is just purely an insult? Can't imagine someone going 'ooh he's got a lovely prick' or 'oooh I caught my prick in my zip'. That kind of thing.
Fuck you, you utter, utter prick.
'ooh he's got a lovely prick'
Supermarkets are supposed to be cooler than houses, especially kitchens.
There are certain things (eg eggs), that are okay to be sold on the shelves but should be stored in the fridge at home.
The worst place for eggs is the fridge door (like milk, variations in temperature will make it go off quicker, and the fridge door has fairly large variations in temperature). Kind of ironic, given where the egg holder things tend to be in a fridge.
Best place is either in the main part of the fridge (although many dishes eg boiled, poached or fried eggs, need them to be at room temperature for ideal cooking), or in a cupboard, where they'll be fine for 1-2 weeks at least (I keep mine in a hen thing on the sideboard by the bread bin).

As I say, I store them in the fridge and take the necessary ones out a little while before cooking.
There's not really a satisfactory way of ensuring that a cupboard doesn't vary in temperature with the kitchen, unless you've got a separate larder.
They're just fine on the sideboard. Don't need to start timing out my day to get eggs out of the fridge an hour before cooking, and I can have eggs for breakfast straight after getting up. I've never had an egg go off - as I said, they'll last 2 weeks easy, and who has half a dozen eggs for over 2 weeks?
Nut jobs, that's who.
as an anti-gnome device
Yours probably isn't, no.
Good, current reference.
Nice you you fucking prick.
i.e. biscuits, chocolate, crisps..
you can taste the flavour more. science or something.
i particularly love biscuits chilled.
AND I CHOSE TO WRITE ABOUT IT ON THE INTERNET IN CAPS
Tastes sort of exotic.
He also puts (closed) tins of food in the fridge, ? putting crisps in the fridge is the work of a fucking lunatic
but often it tastes better warm, e.g brie or camembert
and every single damn weekend would find a pube in a fridge
don't they keep fresh on their own? this is new to me
HOW THE HELL DID THEY GET THERE??? I MEAN SERIOUSLY!
to summarise, pubes do not need to go in the fridge
and not your average chest or underarm hair? Had a sniff did you you caravan cleaning pube sniffer.
it could have been really long chest hair, still counts as pube though
oops sorry, was that too much? i can never tell. :D
I thought this was a funny story, maybe i told it wrong.
I posted my post before I even read yours. Sorry for confusion.
in this egg holder thing on top of the bread bin. no idea what temperature my kitchen is, probably changes a lot. my eggs are always fine. suck on that. suck on those eggs.
it's not true, the rumours are wrong and false. my bread bin and i would like to put this behind us and just move on.
my tescos keep their bread UNDER THE HEATING VENT
Do you live in a cave?
