What is the biggest safe container for soup? The soup comes out of the slow cooker at a high temperature (not measured), but I need to refrigerate it for storage, and that means that it needs to be cooled down rapidly. That means small containers.
How small should the containers be? They are standard plastic — I don't have anything fancy.
Currently, I put them into containers and place them in the fridge, but that is all. Should I cool them in water?
