Several things might be why: 1.) Plastics leach flavor and odor into the milk. Cardboard cartons are also lined with plastic, not wax since about the 1940s. I would say this is likely the biggest impact-- I've always found plastic containers make drinks and food taste downright funky. 2.) Oxygen Permeability: Glass has no O2 permeability whereas most ...

I suspect that it's the source of the milk rather than the container. The shorter the supply chain from cow to your refrigerator, the longer the milk will last in your refrigerator. Mass-produced supermarket milk, which is generally (always?) sold in low-cost plastic containers, spends more time being shipped and distributed than locally-sourced organic ...

I have been scrambling three large eggs at a time. I eat one and put the rest in the fridge in a sealed plastic container. I make egg salad out of the leftovers for sandwiches over the next two days adding various things like onion bits, dill, mustard, hot sauce, lemon pepper, cheese slices, etc. The eggs taste just fine. The sealed container keeps them ...

We throw out bread when it's too hard to bite into, or repurpose it for something else (breadcrumbs). The exception is when it's stored under somewhat humid conditions. Then it ...

Rye bread will last about 4 to 5 days in the pantry and up to 3 months if you store it in the freezer. If you store the bread in the freezer at 0°F, it could be stored for much longer. To prevent freezer burn, wrap the entire package with aluminum foil. Keep as much air out of the bag when not in use and close the bag tightly. I wouldn't store bread in ...

While legal specifics vary from place to place, the "best before" on a product is often a requirement, but exactly what it is is left up to the manufacturer. In other words, they have to provide one, but it can be anything they want (there may be rules about guaranteeing nutritional content for the duration, if that is subject to degradation). So ...

Coming from Italian origin. I remember my grandmother and aunties in Italy leaving the block of Parmesan in the large round Parmesan grater that everyone seemed to have and that's where it stayed, in amongst the grated cheese. Because the lid has hundreds of small holes in it, the cheese would eventually dry out. However, this doesn't spoil the cheese as ...

I made Pavlovas 2 weeks ago for a wedding, 2 were left over. They are sitting on parchment paper and wrapped 3 times in cling film and have been in the fridge since then. I am having guests on Sunday 7th June and am going to put cream and fresh fruit on them. I have just checked them and they are fine.
