After doing some random searching on the web I found a few sites on Kitchen and Cooking Basics:
- How to Store Food Properly in the Freezer and Fridge: http://lifehacker.com/5814958/how-to-store-food-properly-in-the-freezer-and-fridge
- More from the USDA: http://www.fsis.usda.gov/Fact_Sheets/Basics_for_Handling_Food_Safely/
- The Food Lab: More Tips for Perfect Steaks: http://www.seriouseats.com/2011/03/the-food-lab-more-tips-for-perfect-steaks.html
- Great Chefs share tricks of the trade: http://www.latimes.com/features/food/la-fo-master-class-thomas-keller-20110428,0,3142391.htmlstory
I didn’t realize the USDA had guidelines for how long you should store certain products. It’s worth a glance.
