Do you keep veggies in there? Tomatoes? Eggs? Ketchup? (My mum has instilled in me some kind of necessary imperative to always keep ketchup in the fridge - or I'm not allowed to buy it grin). What about jam?

Just curious

all of those. ketchup goes nasty and seperates if you leave it own. Jam grows mould. All my veg/salad type stuff goes in there apart from potatoes. Doesn't everybody?

green veg, tomatoes, jam, chutney - yes

spuds / root veg / onions mostly in baskets in the conservatory but in fridge in summer as conservatory gets v hot

ketchup, bread, marmite, chilli sauce etc - no

eggs - certainly not

why not eggs? <perplexed>

I was just wondering if it is good for veg to be kept in the fridge. Seems a bit unnatural. But all mine except eggs go in the fridge. Oh and not potatoes or bread either.

I dont keep potatoes, onions, bananas, pears, oranges, apples in the fridge. Salad veg, grapes, strawberries, peppers, tomamtoes all go in the salad drawers - eggs also in fridge. Ketchup, peanut butter, jam, open jars get put in fridge. I dont keep bread in the fridge as it goes stale quicker.

Where should eggs be kept?

I thought you should keep them in the fridge but let them warm to room temperature before use

ChopsTheDuck Thu 17-Jul-08 12:58:39

thats what I do, seona.

I keep my eggs in the fridge for fear they might hatch - my house is sooo warm
