Storing a fruit platter
I promised to bring a fresh-fruit platter from New York, to our Thanksgiving in Massachusetts.
I plan to pick-up the platter on Wednesday, as we are leaving early Thursday morning, and Whole Foods doesn't open until 8AM on Thursday.
So, how can I store this platter overnight? My NYC apartment refrigerator just cannot fit another thing, let alone a large platter of fresh fruit.
Do you think I can leave it out overnight, in an unheated room? I don't think the weather is expected to be too cold, but the room is fairly cool.
Thanks for any suggestions.
NO. Not unless the room is as cold as your fridge.
What about clearing some room in the fridge of items that might last all night in a cool room, like jars of pickles and condiments. How about moving stuff from the fridge to a picnic cooler overnight.
Keep the fruit in the fridge.
A little late for this time, but maybe next time order the fruit plate from Whole Foods in Massachusetts or other store along the way on Thursday.
