One slep loward economy is gelling the most from the food you buy. and that starts with proper care of it from the time purchased until served. Take meal, for inslnnce. For besl keeping qualities, fresh meat should be unwrapped as soon ns possible after it Is purchased. With the heavy wrappings removed, store il uncovered or lightly topped with waxed paper in the meal keeper or other cold section of your refrigerator. This allows for a desirable slight drying-out of the meat surface, points out Reba Staggs, meat, expert. Cooked meats are cared for in just the opposite way. Further drying after cooking is not desirable, so meat that Is cooked should be closely wrapped with j waxed paper, aluminum foil or placed in a covered dish before storing in the refrigerator. I Canned meats may be left on your kitchen shelf with the exception of canned hams. These should be placed under refrigeration.
