Answer What fridge/freezer practices should I be aware of?
My mum has put the fear of cooking/freezing into me with an email this morning. She was reminding me to check the thermostat on my fridge and freezer regularly. She wrote “How cold is your fridge? And how cold does the freezer get? You know it has to be at least minus 15 in order to keep commercially frozen foods frozen safely? And you can’t actually freeze thing yourself because you need minus 30. If you put leftovers or whatever in the freezer, you will get about 200 bacteria being cultivated in it.”
So I was hoping you might be able to get some answers from other mother-experts out there on safe fridge/freezer practices. Thank you!
