I have a big tin of baked beans. I don't want to eat the whole tinful (I am enough of a Windy Miller as it is) but I do want to eat some of them. If I pour the extra beans into a bowl (I know about not leaving them in the tin once opened), cover and put in the fridge, how quickly should they be used up?
I think keeping them in the tin once its opened is a bad idea because of something to do with oxidisation and reactions between the metal of the tin and the beans when exposed to air. But thanks anyway.
