Agent Gives Methods Of Preventing Mold And Drying Out A good refrigerator is not Ihc complete answer lo Ihc keeping of meat In summer, according lo Cora Lee Coleman. county home demon-' stralion agent, who warned Hint If not given Ihe proper care hi the re- frlgoralor, meal may dry oul, mold, acquire mi unpleasant taste, or even spoil. Shu recommended Hint, In general, incut should never be washed !or even wiped with a damp cloth until just before cooking, explaining lhal usually washing is unnecessary am! only wasles good Juice and flavor. She suggested that the honiemnkcr remove meal from Ihc market paper as soon as it reaches the kitchen, lay il on a plale, cover lightly with waxed paper, and pul in the meat compartment of flic refrigerator Just under the frecn- ing unit. Meat should not be cut or chopped until just before using because cut and chopped meat spoil:! fasler llian whole pieces. Slcaks. chops, and roasts generally keep bellcr than other culs, and may be safely held two or three days In a refrigerator with a temperature of 45 degrees F., or colder, Ihe ionic demonstration agent said. Ground meal, she explained, should lie cooked or frozen In the freezing unit within 2-1 hours after H is purchased, Before II is frozen, seasoning should be added and the meat formed into cooking portions, then wrapped lightly in waxetl paper lo keep It from drying. The same rule holds for variety meats like liver, kidneys, and heart, slio said. Ham nnd other smoked mcaU, If mildly cured, need refrigeration hut will keep in Ihc refrigerator us long as two weeks. To prevent mold homemakers can wrap them In clear, cloth wrung out of vinegar and then in waxed paper. Leftover cooked meat keeps best In r. covered dish or wrapped In wexed paper to prevent drying, it should be handled as lltllc as possible. Chicken and other poultry arc the exception to the rule of not washing or wiping until Just before using' says Miss Coleman. Poultry should be cleaned and wiped with a damp cloth before il Is put in the refrigerator. It Is frozen just as meat is.
