Just wondering on what the proper way is.....
I just made some Sloppy Joe (haven't had that in over 25 years ). Anyway, made me think was is the proper way to handle the leftovers.
Of course, you can't put it in the frig hot, but do you let it cool 100% before putting it in frig?
Some food cools quicker than other, but if I have a small container of something and its almost cooled off, but still a bit warm, I put it in frig (but loosely covered) that way.
If I have a lot of something, I often divide into smaller containters to cool out of the frig first. I of course wouldn't put a pretty warm pot of sauce in the frig since that would raise the temp of the frig overall.
I always hear about be careful on how long you leave some foods out, so was wondering what the proper way is.
