What can’t I put in the fridge?

There is an ongoing debate about what the British people think should go in the fridge versus the larder. You can put most things in the fridge. When it comes to fruit and vegetables there are a couple of exceptions:

  • Tomatoes - Storing tomatoes in the fridge can affect their texture and if it’s a salad tomato can make it mushy;
  • Bananas – Putting bananas in the fridge will slow down the ripening process so if you want your bananas to ripen keep them out of the fridge.
  • Garlic - In the fridge, garlic will go off quickly. The problem is from the outside, the look of garlic rarely changes. The taste and texture will be affected and you probably won’t know until it’s too late.
