Always Refrigerate These Seven Foods

Dates should be stored in the fridge, even though other dried fruit can be stored in the pantry.

Due to its high sugar content, jam may not deteriorate if stored in the cupboard after opening. You should keep it in the fridge.


Opened red bottles should be refrigerated, defying wine convention.
