Preservation method of raw zongzi
Due to the hot weather, high temperature and humidity in summer, zongzi is suitable for the growth and propagation of various microorganisms, pathogens and molds. Zongzi, which is composed of glutinous rice, meat (or bean paste) and other raw materials, is easy to deteriorate after being stored at room temperature for more than 2 hours. Do not buy or eat Zongzi stored at room temperature and sold without refrigeration facilities. It is better to put zongzi stored for a long time in the freezer freezer. Zongzi can only be boiled and preserved. Don't put it in the fresh-keeping layer after cooking. It's easy to break when it's put there. Put it in the frozen layer and it won't go bad for ten and a half days. (the temperature of the refrigerator is the best between 5 ℃ and 3 ℃).
Preservation of fresh zongzi
The fresh zongzi should be placed in a cool, ventilated and dry place in an open bag, and refrigerated in a refrigerator within 12 hours. It can be kept fresh for about 3 days in a low-temperature refrigerated state of 0 ℃ - 4 ℃, and can be kept for a longer time in a freezer at - 18 ℃. Fresh zongzi must not be placed in the sealed, hot car trunk to transport home, otherwise it is very easy to mildew. Note: fresh zongzi is most afraid of sultry. If it is exposed to high temperature, it is easy to get moldy and degenerate, so it must be heated and eaten as soon as possible after buying it home.
Preservation method of frozen zongzi
The requirements of storage and distribution of quick-frozen zongzi are very high. When purchasing, it is necessary to pay attention to the purchase of quick-frozen zongzi placed in the super freezer, and to go home as soon as possible and immediately put them in the freezer of the refrigerator to ensure that they are stored below - 18 ℃. Note: the quick-frozen zongzi must be eaten after being fully heated. It is better to use the method of boiling and heating with water to cook the zongzi in boiling water for 13-15 minutes before eating.
Preservation of vacuum zongzi
It is better to put the vacuum zongzi in a cool and dry place. Pay special attention not to let the sun direct. Zongzi is usually stored at 8-15 & deg; C. the vacuum packed zongzi can be kept for three months, while the non vacuum packed zongzi can only be kept for 3-5 days. Below 8 & deg; C, the structure of the glutinous rice will change, the texture will become thin and rotten, and the taste will become moldy. Therefore, we should buy too many zongzi blindly. Note: due to the long storage life of vacuum zongzi, check whether there is air leakage and package expansion before eating. If air leakage or bulging is found before eating, do not eat.
Notes on saving zongzi
Zongzi must pay attention to keep the temperature. Zongzi that can't be eaten must be put in the refrigerator.
1. It is better not to refrigerate for more than 3 days.
2. Don't freeze for more than two weeks. Reheat before eating.
3. If there is sticky wire after the zongzi is peeled, it means that the zongzi may have been put for a long time, and it is not fresh.
4. The leaves can be dried and preserved.
5. If you eat the leftover zongzi, you need to wait for the temperature of zongzi to recede and drain the water before putting it into the refrigerator, because zongzi is prone to deterioration and mildew due to its temperature and humidity.
6. Before putting it in the refrigerator, it's better to put a fresh-keeping bag on zongzi, so as to prevent zongzi and the things in the refrigerator from stringing and losing their freshness. But the mouth of the bag can't be too tight and stuffy. You need to breathe the zongzi.
How many days can I put my own dumplings in the refrigerator?
All kinds of food are better and fresh. If it's something like zongzi, the shelf life of food is longer than other fruits and vegetables. If you want to do it well in advance, you should not put it in the refrigerator for more than three days. More than three days is best to be able to freeze up, of course, frozen time should not exceed a week.
Don't be greedy when eating zongzi on Dragon Boat Festival. Zongzi is made of glutinous rice and is not easy to digest. If you eat too much, you will have a long stomach, especially for the elderly and children, one at a time.
