In the past, the arrival of fall meant a scramble to harvest and preserve as much food as possible before the cold weather set in. Most families would spend many long hours working on this enormous task because their year-round access to food depended on it. Only in recent decades, we have become reliant on the convenience of refrigerators. There is a lot of wastage of food during summer because bacteria and fungus grow quickly in food during this season. Especially in the summer season, it becomes difficult to store cooked food for a long time. This problem increases further when you do not have a fridge. Actually, during the summer season, you can save food from getting spoiled by storing it in the fridge, but there are many people who do not have a fridge in their house. The problems for these people increase even more during summer.

During the summer season, your food can also get spoiled due to some carelessness. People often blame the weather for food spoilage, but they forget that it may also be their fault. Here we are telling you some such tips with the help of which you will be able to save the food from spoiling for a long time even without keeping it in the fridge during the summer season.

Avoid using excess spices 

During summers, dishes in which a lot of spices have been used get spoiled quickly. The more lightly spiced food you eat in this season, the better it will be for your health. Eating less spicy food will keep the body cool and the food will not spoil quickly. Besides, you can also pack less spicy food for travelling. At the same time, if you pack food with more spices, it will spoil sooner than food with less spices.

Reduce quantity of tomatoes

Although food will not taste good without tomatoes and onions, you can definitely reduce their quantity. By doing this they will not spoil quickly. On the other hand, if you have a habit of eating food with lots of onion and tomato, then eat it within 2 to 3 hours of cooking.

Avoid heating of food

Most of the people do not like to eat cold food, hence whenever they eat food, they definitely heat it. Repeated heating of food spoils its taste and can also spoil it quickly.

Don't mix foods 

Some people have the habit of eating things by mixing them and then leaving it like that. In such a situation, the possibility of food getting spoiled increases. Therefore, serve yourself only as much food as you can eat.
