Most people think the best way to preserve foods we purchase is to put them in refrigerators. However, certain foods which should never be placed in the fridge.
Tomatoes are our favorite. Put in the fridge stops them from ripening and deprive the taste and flavor out of them. What's worse, the cold temperature breaks down the membranes within the fruit walls, according to Harold McGee’s On Food and Cooking. To keep tomatoes inside a basket or a bowl on your counter is a smart choice.
