What does food not being refrigerated from the start have to do with refrigerating it after or not.

@DrewCarey420 What does food not being refrigerated from the start have to do with refrigerating it after or not.

Cause once something is unsealed the air can spoil it a lot faster. But cold slows down cellular activity, therefore preserving the food for a bit longer. Your best option to preserve food for years, is to can it

@Coeurdemonstre1 They said frigerated and re-frigerated

You're not answering the question nor clarifying anything.

Sure but OP isnt actually referring to taking room-temp food and making it cold in a refrigerator after using it. The word play is talking about ‘frigerating' food to make it cold the first time and letting it warm to room temp, then ‘re-frigerating it again'.

We live in reality, but I don't even remember being in ality.

If you google frigerate for whatever reason it tells you the word is obsolete, who decided that? Obsolete: no longer in use or no longer useful an obsolete word.

Frigerate means to cool something. Apparently refrigerate means the same thing, if you google it. It doesn't mean to 're-cool' something. Again, who decided this?

Logically, wouldn't it make sense that frigerate would mean to cool something, and refrigerate would mean to re-cool something?

For example, when you go to the grocery store and pick up milk, it's cold, on the drive home, the temperature of the milk will likely rise a little, when you get home you put it into your refrigerator, re-cooling it... Making it refrigerated?

I think I have spent too much time thinking about this honestly... Either google is a liar, or the person who decides how the English language works is just a troll. ^.^

I respect you

Yea old fashioned food storage techniques are cool. Keeping root veggies in the ground till you need them, dry storage, food cellars. Coating meat, and cheese in fat to preserve it. Not to mention fermentation and curing with salt. Pretty much a cool, dry, lightless areas are the ancient fridges

Personally I'd love to go back to basics, veggies from the store go bad so quickly compared to homegrown stuff
