It’s time to Take Stock of what’s in your freezer and fridge.

These appliances are awesome tools that extend the useful life of food. However, they do not make things last forever!

Go through everything in your freezer and determine what to continue to keep and what needs to be used or discarded. Then repeat the process for your refrigerator.

While you are at it, clean the fridge and defrost the freezer.

This exercise will not only result in ensuring that the food you have in these appliances is safe to eat but will help you “discover” stuff you have forgotten you have, will show where you may have supply gaps, and will make room for the upcoming growing season.

Here is a link to a Cold Food Storage Chart to guide you in this assignment:
