Knowing the shelf life of perishables will prevent them from becoming too dangerous to eat. Refer to this guide.

During your weekly grocery trip to the supermarket, it’s tempting to pick up produce that has been deeply discounted. But wait a minute ― will you cook the kailan before it spoils?

It’s important to know how long the fresh produce can last and how best to store it. This way, you can plan your meals wisely, save a tidy sum, plus steer clear of stomach troubles.

Storing your meat and produce in the freezer will extend its shelf life. Do note, though, that the storage period also depends on factors like how ripe or fresh the supplies was when you bought it, and how cold your refrigerator is.

Print this rough guide and keep track of how long you should be storing common perishables in your chiller.
