Jam: Don’t we all just love some nice strawberry jam spread with butter on our toast in the mornings? Well, we often make the mistake of refrigerating any kind of jam.
There are some types of preservatives in jam and jellies that turn into their crystal forms. To keep this from happening, it’s best if you would store them on a shelf.
Pickles: They don’t need to be refrigerated because they contain a lot of sodium and brine. They’ve already been preserved, so you can go ahead and keep this item in the pantry to free up some valuable refrigerator space.
